    Please help! We have 10 new ducklings (about 2 1/2 weeks old) and I just noticed some of them have sores on the bottom of their feet. From what I've read it looks like it could be bumble foot. How can we help/treat them? I've attached photos for verification.
    Any advice, suggestions and tips would be appreciated. [​IMG]

    It looks like some injuries, not yet bumblefoot. Are they limping, or did you find this during inspection?

    I found it during inspection.
    New update, since moving them out of the brooder into the grassy pen -all healed! Hooray!
