Can a duckling have a lazy eye?? She always keeps that eye closed well for the most part or always when I am holding her. She does open it and it doesn’t appear to have any eye junk in it. Here are a few pictures of her...

Have you been able to get a good look at her eye? Might try a saline wash using 1/8th teaspoon of salt to 1 cup of warm water mix well and wash out she could have dust in it or like cr said she may have gotten poked.

She’s actually in the tub right now and she keeps scratching that same spot and might have a little blood on her face. Should I keep her away from the others for now? I can’t let anything happen to her.

Unless you see them picking at her I wouldn't separate her from them, that can be stressful too. Just get a good look at the eye and wash it out good unless she is doing it herself now. still might want to think of the saline wash or get some Terramycin ointment and use it in her eyes that is an antibiotic ointment for eyes.

The swelling is closer to her bill than her eye. I didn’t really notice it last night but when I came home to check on them I noticed it as soon as I picked her up. I am so new at this and I’m very concerned and worried.

Where would I get that at?
