    I noticed that one of my Saxony ducks has a lump on their bill. Some online sleuthing reveals others that have had slightly similar issues, but a bit different. This bump is hard and has no discoloration. I checked inside of the mouth and noted nothing abnormal.

    Here's a blurrier picture but you can see the lump a bit better.

    Anything to be super concerned about? Something to keep an eye on and see if it goes away/changes?

    That was on my drake drake once. I think he hurt his bill and so the bill "skin" just grew over it I'm thinking. It disappeared not too long ago. Not sure what it actually was though
