This is my first official duck post since registering and it’s just eating at me to get it out in the universe. I have a female Pekin (age unknown) who has had a lame leg this past week. But! That’s not the issue (I’ve been handling the leg thus far with no issues). While I was patting her down after her physical therapy bath (to ensure no moisture left anywhere; it’s Indiana and freezing) I found something on her breast bone that deserves to be identified. I’m hoping that I can post the pic (being new to the board, I’d understand if I couldn’t) but frankly, after 4 hours of Googling a million different search terms, I’ve come up empty handed. It looks and feels JUST like a Pore Of Winer (you can see them on internet and pimple popping YouTube channels but heads up to the squeamish). I didn’t pluck it out because, frankly, I didn’t know what it was and didn’t want to hurt her before I found out. Not going to lie though; I’m admittedly a pimple popper and love watching gross things getting plucked out. So it’s taken everything in me (my care and concern for the duck) for me not to snatch her from her slumber and pick at it. Any suggestions or ideas? She didn’t indicate any pain when I was poking around it. Skin is not red, swollen or otherwise any indications of infection. It legitimately just looks like the biggest black head in the history of waterfowl. Only other things I could think of were possibly a botfly :: PUKE :: or maybe she’d had a tiny nick there before and the resulting scarred hole filled up with crud? Would love y’alls input. I’m eager to prod at it (I’m ridiculous).
