Head trauma is fairly common in ducks, occurring in multiple presentations and severity, from mild to life-threatening. Head injuries may be outwardly apparent by the presence of hemorrhaging, loss of tissue, and in many incidences, complete exposure of the brain. In other cases, the bird may not show any external evidence of a head injury, but will present with a wide range of temporary to permanent clinical signs of neurological impairment.
