    A duckling hatched today (Along with his five siblings) Under a broody hen. I noticed he was only opening one eye, so I gently opened the other. However I saw a cloudy bluish mess over his eye? Is this blindness or something else? Can the little guy adapt to living like this?
    Side note: Despite his eye, he and all his siblings are healthy and active.

    Good morning.
    I'm sure the little duckling will be fine, but you may wish to consider posting in the ducks forum. You may get a response much faster from the duck crew. :fl
