    Could it be her tear duct is blocked? Do ducks have tear ducts?

    Just did some research, no ducks do not have tear ducts. I wonder what the cause could be.

    Without going to a vet, you may not know.

    I would start with a mild saline solution rinse three times a day, and add poultry vitamins with electrolytes and probiotics to the water once a week for everybody.

    Have you tried saline solution yet? Vetericyn makes an eye gel, also.
