    I have a 4 day old muscovy duckling that this morning has very swollen eye lids and goopy eye. I don't know what happened to her, she is in a brooder with other ducklings so she could have gooten pecked.

    I put her in a warm bath and that helped open her eye, but the eye lid is still swollen. What can I do for her. I only have nasal saline spray. Will this be ok to flush her eye out with. (I won't spray it in her just just do a few drops.)

    What else can I do?
