    I have attached a picture of this ducks feet. He is about one year old, never had any problems. Saw him hobbling around this morning and won’t put ANY weight on his left foot. I have no idea what this could be, but unfortunately he can barely get from one side of the coop to another so we need to do something quick to make sure he can eat and drink and keep up with the flock. He won’t put weight on his left foot, but will hop on his right one, which is the one that looks injured to me!! Maybe his left leg is injured and his right foot?? I have no idea..Thank you all in advance!!!

    What does the bottom of his foot look like?

    This is the best pic I have of it. Could that be an abscess?
