  3. Alright [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]

    BYC has a very useful Learning Center always good info there to read [​IMG]

    Sounds like your duck stepped on something sharp and you might want to check for a thorn or other object just as you would check your on foot for a thorn or other furan object [​IMG]

    If her foot is swollen, it could be infected. Is her foot hot to the touch? Does she protest if you touch it? Have you checked the bottom of her foot? I don't know if ducks can get bumble foot like chickens do. How old is she? Some ducks can have a niacin deficiency that causes leg problems. Posting on the duck threads or taking her to a vet would be better than listening to me.
