    I spread some fertiliser on a hedge last night across the lane from my chickens and ducks but I forgot that i have one duck who seems to be able to escape from the enclosed area ( half of an acre ) .She was fine this morning but is now sitting with her eyes closed what can I do ? I cant think it was anything else the fertilizer is in pellet form and I think she must have eaten some, HELP PLEASE

    get on the phone to a vet...they might know if you should help the duck drink water to dilute it or not
