I was asked by a friend at work if I could babysit her duck over the Winter. She only has one duck, which was raised with her chickens. She is getting rid of the chickens this Fall, and starting a new flock in the Spring, but she doesn't want the duck to be lonely over the Winter. So I offered to add her to my freeranging flock of 9 hens and 1 rooster. I picked up the duck this morning, and she really is a sweet bird, but she has some problems. I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT DUCKS, so any advice would be appreciated. Firstly, she has bugs on her head, especially around her eyes. They look an awful lot like the ticks I sometimes find on my cat's face. Is that all they are? Can I treat her with something like Advantix? I've used this on my chickens to cure lice once and for all, but is it safe on ducks? Below is the best picture I was able to get of the Eye Bugs. All the black around her eye is tiny little bugs. They can be removed one by one with tweezers, but I'm hoping Advantix will work. Secondly, she has weird feet. One foot seems to be twisted inward, making it hard for her to walk. She steps on her own foot every time she takes a step. Her owner says she's always been that way, but I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to help her. Here are some pictures of her funky feet: Are their legs supposed to be that lumpy? The "knee" on both legs seem huge, is that normal? Here's the bottom of the twisted-in foot: Thanks again for any help or advice!
