Sick Cayuga duck hen, HELP!!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi folks,

I have a 1.5 year old mature Cayuga duck hen that's turned up poorly yesterday morning. 

Symptoms are: 

Yellow-green watery diarrhea

Lethargic

Some clear eye discharge

Limping, right leg weaker than the other, doesn't seem broken. 

***

Still interested in mealworms, some feed, but eating very tiredly and not very much. 

I have no idea what to do for her. I have her in my hospital cage. No vets available, HELP!

It kinda sounds like she has salmonella to me and that she hurt her leg around the same time. I've read that when ducks and chickens get salmonella they get eye infections and are lethargic and of course the diarrhea. They get sick just like us. Even if she doesn't have it you need to make sure she has plenty of water, you can get dehydrated easily when you have diarrhea.
