    This is my first time raising ducklings and I noticed one of my girls developed a red eye today. Anyone experience this and have tips?[​IMG]

    Are you providing water for them that's deep enough for them to dunk their whole heads? What type of set up do you have? I'd rinse it with saline solution and make sure there's no debris or anything. Is it the actual eye? Or the eyelid?

    It is the inner eye lid. They have multiple waterers in the brooder that are deep enough to dunk their heads. I'm heading to Tractor supply to grab terramycin and hoping that helps.
