An acquaintance and I made an order for ducklings from Ideal poultry. They arrived last Friday, but I was unable to pick them up until Sunday night. They are black runners and have been rather difficult to inspect because of their dark color. These are my first ducks...my husband and I say down with them tonight with a bright light and their first bath. We were able to finally give them the once over and it looks like one of them has swollen tear ducts. Her eyes are very watery. I know none of the ducklings my friend ordered survived the shipment and she was keeping them with the chicks that did survive. The friend has ducks already, so I believe she was caring for them properly. They were kind if grimey looking when I picked them up, but I figured it was due to them being ducks or housed with the chicks. I have Storey's Guide, and I think maybe the duckling has sticky eye, so I'm wondering if she just needs time to let them clear up on their own?
