    I found out one of my ducklings is blind. He has one good looking eye and the other is stuck shut. He can't see out the good side. He is about a week old now. I am going to keep it, just wondering if anyone else has any blind ducks and how they cope. Thanks

    I have a blind hen. She does fine. I'm sure your little guy will be OK. [​IMG]

    I've been watching him, he is eating and drinking ok. I'm in the middle of moving too, so when he gets to the new house I'm going to set up a pen for him and his friend so its always the same. I think he may see a little, he doesn't run into the walls of his box, but he does walk slow, so I'm not sure. Thanks
