    I was playing outside with my 2 new ducklings, and I looked under their feet l, and found that my runner duckling has scabs on hunder her feet. She cant have bumble foot so young, could she?

    Could she have been in the incubator too long & gotten little burns, or on wire too early at the hatchery...?

    Might want to put some type of antibiotic salve on them, w/o pain relief.
