    Help! My ducklings were in w/a chick, all hatched together, and either the ducks pecked eachother or i think the chick pecked them. I have three that have what looks like bulging eyes but i don't see iris or pupil, just yellow bulging. I applied antiobiotic opthalmic ointment and am trying to keep wiped of tears,etc. Anyone else? I am afraid they will be blinded. Only 1 eye each thank goodness.

    Thanks everyone. 1 has died, he was the runt, so maybe something else was involved, the others seem to be healing over though i think will be blind in 1 eye each.
