    I'm not sure what happened to my 1 female she was fine this morning when I let them out of there pen to free range, then at about 2:30 this afternoon I noticed that she was sitting in the yard away from the other ducks " my male kept walking up like he was checking on her". I went out to check on her when I was done bathing my dog & saw that she was done at the pond with the other ducks but when they walked away she could barely walk. I picked her up & brought her to the garage, I checked her leg & foot there is no blood or bleeding & I didn't see anything in her foot. I have her in the garage in a tote & she is just standing in the tote on 1 foot. Here are some pics, Please help duck hurt leg.jpg tops of feet.jpg left foot.jpg right foot.jpg

    i know its a stressful time but that first picture is cute


    Looks like her foot has extensive bumbling, atleast 4 on that foot

    Might be painfull for her today, or she slipped and sprained her leg

    Eitherway you could start with a warm bath for the pain, And start daily epsom salt soaks to start treating the bumble

    Iam sure @casportpony has a much more experienced opinion also

    Thank you, I googled bumble foot & I didn't think that's what she has, I thought it was just callused

    Looks like bumbles to me. When it come to treating these I have very little experience, but when I do get one like this I start my soaking their feet, then cleaning them, and inspecting them.

    epsom salt is a natural laxitive so dont let her drink any, if you decide to use epsom salt
