    Have you tried Epsom salt soaks? Just a suggestion. I'm not very experienced in that category of duck care.

    Something going on there but can't see anything that looks like bumble Do some soaks in the Epsom salt and run your finger over his skin to see if you can feel a splinter or something that maybe in there. But the ES works to alleviate swelling and inflammation so hopefully so good soaks will take care of it. It could even be a break if so then the ES will help with that too on the swelling it will take time to heal though.
