    I have a drake muscovy that started limping 2 days ago. He would take a few steps and then lay down. I checked for bumblefoot but there seems to be only callus or i think it is. Checked the joints and everything seems fine. please help.

    Quote:The callous could be the bumblefoot. You'll have to do minor surgery to go get it and dig it out if that's what it is. Is it possible he jumped down from a high place and pulled or sprained a ligament or tendon, muscle? Here's a link to a duck bumblefoot procedure currently happening that might interest you:
