    I came home to find my female rouen duck has a swollen eye. at first i thought the eye was gone but its just very swollen. there is discharge from the eye so i believe she must have gotten scratched. Can i use polysporin eye drops? just don't want it to get infected.

    How is she now? We chatted on the Duck Forum last night.

    So far she seems to be doing good, the swelling has gone down a bit. i believe shes going to be okay. but there doesn't look like there is an eye in there.

    Give it another while - I hope it's just a little sunken, and okay. The inner membrane may be over it to protect it.
