    I noticed a spot on the end of one of my pekin's bill today while I was soaking his feet. Searching around I found ducks that get little freckles but could not find anything that looked like this. Hoping it's not anything serious.

    I remember seeing someone this year having something kinda like this. I don't remember what was said to heal it, but I am sure that the people who said all that good stuff will hop on soon! I would put, for now, some neosporin on it....

    I personally wouldn’t put neosporin on it. It will just end up being ingested and lead to gastric upset.

    Just provide clean water so duck can keep that bill clean.

    You could try a little apple cider vinegar in drinking water to heal the bill

    It's nothing. It must Of banged its bill on something. Just leave it. It will go away on its own. No need for intervention.
