    Hello all, I came home a little bit ago to find my ducks eye very bloody and watery with lots of skin pecked off from my sex link hens

    What can I do to help her? I have been lucky and have only had to deal with a couple minor injuries in my flock of one year, so I'm not sure what to do. No worries on covering the blood because I'm separating her from the chickens permanently and will be getting duck friends for her soon.

    Wash her eye out with warm salty water 1/8 tea to 1 cup warm water that should help and if you have Veterycin spray for wounds and infections that is safe to use too. Yes keep her away from the hens they can be brutal at times. @PearlTheDuck

    Terramycin is good and will help if bacteria got into the eye.Bless her heart I am glad they didn't injure her eye ball.

    Glad she is doing better today. @PearlTheDuck

    Yeah we're lucky her eye was not injured!

    Her eye is pretty much completely healed and she's been being herself :)

    I didn't end up putting stuff on it because it was healing good on its own and I didn't want to mess with it unless I had too
