Scabs on Caruncles?

    I was just outside and picked my big Drake, Sidney, up for a minute to give him some pets & attention and I noticed that he has all these little scabs in between his caruncle lumps. They don't seem to be hurting him or infected or anything, but I have never noticed it before & know none of the girls have it, I pick them up more than the boys(cause they're so heavy). I also didn't notice it on Fatty last time I picked him up but his caruncles are not as lumpy as Sidney's. Are the scabs just where more caruncle is growing? (if it matters, Sid is 2+yrs old)

    I didn't get a picture before he jumped off my lap, sorry.

    Do try and get a picture if you can [​IMG]

    Has he been in any fights Could be an injury?

    Do you notice any pimples or abnormal looking carnacles, or anything strange on his beak?

    Do the scab sites smell funny?
