    One of my ducks has what appears to be a little bubble under her eye and its causing her to see out of the other eye. I took her in and I put her in the bath tub with some warm water and its a little better at least she seeing out of it now. Does anyone know what this is? And how to treat it?

    I think the first question you always have to ask when it's an eye problem is does she have access every day to water deep enough to submerge her head?

    I second that--if a tub full of warm water is helping, then I would look first to ducky hygiene. They need water to bathe in, and a reasonably clean environment (so far as that's possible for ducks). If they are bedded on the ground, make sure to layer clean straw every couple days to keep the ground reasonably dry and non-mucky.

    You did a good thing to bring her in. Ducks tend to be pretty tough and she'll probably recover just fine with some attention. Good luck!
