Sick duck! Help!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a 7-8 week khaki cample duck. She has had neck problems ever since I've had her. But recently she keeps her neck scrunched up and her feathers a puffed. A week of two ago we treated her with eye discharge. Also she isn't laying down while she sleeps. We're keeping her inside alone from the other ducks/chicks. Any recommendations on how to fix this? We have possibly have 2 male ducks if that helps any. Thanks.

If the males are mating with her, they are injuring her, I would think.

 

Keep her away from them, treat the eyes with mild saline solution a few times a day.  Keep watch, and you may need to separate the drakes...  flock dynamics can keep us hopping.

 

Please keep us posted.
