    [​IMG]HELP!
    When dodge hatched she had a peck mark on her back and it never grew feathers over it. It has now turned into a air bubble at the base of the neck/back. I haven't popped it incase it gets infected etc. does anyone know what it is??!
    She was premature in hatching and we saved her because she was going to die. She's a bit of a special duck. Haha [​IMG]

    When she was born- it was a peck mark from the hen as she was hatched underneath a hen. But the bubble only appeared after we out her in the Chook pen with the other ducklings. So around 3 weeks ago.
