Hi. I posted this question in the general forum two days ago (on Tuesday), but haven't received any responses yet. I probably should have posted here, but I'm still learning my way around the forum. Tuesday, I noticed that one of my ducks had some clear fluid around his eye. He didn't want to keep his eye opened. I caught him and put him in a separate cage, but I had to keep the cage in the coop with the other ducks because I was afraid he would distress himself if he was separated. Later that night, my husband and I put Veterycyn drops in his eye. Last night (Wednesday), we were unable to work with his eye due to heavy rain all day. Today, I noticed that his eye had completely sealed itself shut. I rubbed his eye with a warm washrag and it came opened, but only slightly. We put more Veterycyn in it before putting him back in his cage. From what I have read, this seems to be some sort of eye infection. My question is, has anyone on here dealt with an eye infection before in ducks and if so, are there any recommendations you have for me for helping his eye heal correctly? Am I doing the right thing? Also, is this contagious to my flock? Even though he freaks out when he's away from the others, should I isolate him more? Any help is appreciated with this. Thanks.
