    My ducks eye started out hazy and pink. She is acting fine and still eats and drinks plenty. I have fresh water for her to put her into and I have flushed it out with saline. I'm not sure what else to do. None of the other ducks have it. Please help!
    God bless and thank you!

    Looks like an infection - I would start lightly misting it with Vetericyn spray four times a day. If I could not get that, or until I could, I would make a mild saline solution and use that.

    She needs to be able to wash her head frequently - does she have that ability, either with a swim pan or head washer?

    There may have been an injury to the eye that started this. Is she being mated too much?

    Amiga. I didn't think about the mating. I do rinse her eye out and she has plenty of fresh swim water. I will try the mist for sure. Thank you!

    Feed it sugar water and hard-boiled egg.
