    I have found maggots on my male pekin duck. Unable to find a wound. How do I get rid of these maggots. First noticed him not acting himself yesterday 7/4 and even more so today so I was able to catch him and check him over and found the maggots in his tail region and his skin through his lower back region looks almost black.

    Please if anyone has any suggestions please help.

    Thank you
