    I just found these spots on my ducks bill the other day, ever had anything like this befor, and none of my other ducks do either. Is this a disease? a fungus? or just normal? also had some things on her one foot to that I have never seen befor, and I do feet checks every so often.[​IMG]

    Are there brambles where she can get into them?

    No, but I had just let them into a tall weeded area. it had grass, and some weeds with seeds on them.

    Would you be willing to post this over on the Duck Forum? https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks

    I have not had this with my runners - but it looks like some kind of impact injury - like thorns or wires have poked at the bill and feet. Are there ant hills around?

    That doesn't look like it would be the problem, not to me anyway.
