Thank You!!! They are not completely Cured, But Looking MUCH better after Tricide Neo Soaks, no cutting. I hope to not have to use antibiotics in the future, (we were trying natural remedies) if we can prevent in the 1st place. Out of desperation I did lay some straw out over the rough areas in thin Layers so it can breath, and it seems to be breaking down, and lovely Grass and Weeds are pushing through the hard Surface I will take your advice, thinking even if have to use mats in 1st of spring every year when snow melts, but not quite ready for grass to pop up. I think that was the problem, going from soft wet snow to a Hard rough surface. They have plenty of grass in outer areas but rather hang out near their house. And I'm sure the hard area was nice and warm, holding heat from sun. You're the Best! Have a wonderful Weekend!

Looking For some Tried Proven Ground cover ideas to prevent BumbleFoot. I have a Few Ducks that have developed spots on their Feet, they are being treated. I think they are cutting themselves on some (new) Pit run dirt I put in to help with drainage in low soup spots in their (Clay) Yard. It worked Really well last year but I found some sharp crushed rocks, and don't know what else it could be. They eat very well, are kept clean(for ducks) I'm afraid putting straw, or mulch over those areas would create a mold problem, It can get moldy around pool area Quick, I have to stay on top of it. Have (Read) sand can create disease issues in smaller spaces,(not to mention won't break down if I have to haul it out) but not sure out in open how it would do for breeding bacteria? I mean Ducks live at beaches Right? They are fenced in For Their Safety, We live in North MN, and have Neighbor Dogs that wont stay out. However I Try To give them plenty of Run room, and am Expanding, they Own the Back yard, and Moving them is not an option. The thought that Came to mind is Ducks in the Wild don't get bumble so what Do We need to change to keep them healthy And Safe. Am looking For Someone Out there Who has experience With owning Ducks For a While, and what is used for your outdoor Ground cover without issues? Please and ThankYou!!
