Bill abscesses in ducks can sometimes occur as a result of a prior injury, usually in the form of a cut or puncture wound that has become infected. It is considered a serious emergency condition for ducks, that needs to be treated by a veterinarian promptly to reduce the likelihood of the abscess rupturing, which can cause the infection to spread to other areas within the body.
