    My 2 1/2 week old Mini Appleyard was not walking very well because it kept not having good balance at times and falling over a lot. Then I noticed today it has a bump on it's back. It is soft/squishy and looks like an abscess. I'm not sure what it could be or what to do about it. I plan on trying to drain it with a needle and put some Vetericyn on it. It is with a Muscovy duckling for companionship at the moment but I'm thinking on separating them so the can Mini heal well. Any suggestions?
