    I would use iodine or Vetericyn on it. She is bruised on her other leg. Is she getting picked on or could she have injured her foot on something sharp?

    I hadn't noticed her getting picked on she towers over all my birds. I suppose that don't mean squat, but like I said I haven't noticed any. I'm thinking maybe ducks aren't for us. No matter what I do I can't get either one to mellow out at all, regardless they run which makes ask my chickens. But thank you for the information the wife picked some up today.
