    I have a total of 7 ducks (5 females and 2 drakes). When I went up to feed tonight after having my mom care for them for a few days I noticed that my female Ancona was missing more feathers on the back of her neck then any one else and that her eyes were runny (almost foam like) and there was a yellow crusty stuff around her eyes and on her beak.

    What do you think is causing this? My first guess is an infection of a sort? Eye infection? If so how do I treat it? Is it best to separate her from the others? Any help and advice is greatly appreciated! I feel so sorry for my poor duck :(
