Strange injury on duck leg


In the Brooder
Nov 25, 2020
I found one of my ducks to be very dirty and blood on it’s head and a fair amount of missing wings. It could walk eat and quack fine and also is laying eggs, but I found this lump on it’s leg and I just don’t know what it could be i don’t think a chicken could do it. Any thoughts?

If chickens see red like blood or open wound they will literally eat something alive. If a predator wasn’t able to get to your duck because you have them in a secure pen then most likely it’s the chickens. Remove this duck and maybe even the rest to their own space wash these wound real good and apply Veterycin and keep this one away from flies that will lay eggs in a wound which mean maggots. Clip the feathers away after washing good an get some better pics please.
