    I know this is for chickens however I need help with 2 of my ducks. I just got them and they were fine. I took them out of quarantine and now their eyes are becoming foamy? Their noses seem fine and they do not have a cough or sneeze. I was afraid it might be that disease. What does everyone think? My daughter said that when the male is (active) with them he has his feet on their heads. Now I have them seperated to cages, but they both have nests. What do I do? Please help!!
    I am new here but I didn't know where else to go..

    Can you post a picture? Coryza is the disease that you are thinking of. It may not be Coryza. I dont even know if ducks get it. There are other things it could be. Maybe something very simple. Could you buy some refresh preservative free eye drops? They are about $7 at Wally World. ECK

    Also there is that Online Avian Vet but I am sorry I do not know the link or his name.

    Hi Kris,
    Thanks for answering my post. I have a pic now. I did some more research and the only thing I could find that was similar to my ducks condition is a lack of vitamin A. Weird huh? I bought them all some Vit and Electrolytes to put in their water and gave them some pumpkin and carrots and sweet potatoes. I am hoping this works. Has anyone ever seen or heard of this? How long should it take to see improvement?

    thanks
    C J
