So I notice one of our Magpie ducks wasn't keeping up with the others and seemed to be in pain. Upon further inspection she had a pretty bad looking case of Bumblefoot. We cut it out, gave her antibiotics, and wrapped it up (so not as easy as a chicken foot). She's in the ISO pen with a friend until it heals and no pond. She's not happy!
After doing some research ( guess I shouldn't have jumped the gun-lesson learned) many forums say not to cut the absess but to put meds on it and leave it alone. Hoping we did the right thing and I don't make it worse.
So...moral for today. Never assume that you've "got this" because you've been there, done that with chickens.
