Someone sent me this message on facebook. Does anyone have any suggestions
They said that the duck has no pupil and that it is just white.
The white over her eyes could be the nictitating membranes or third eyelids. Here is a good article with pictures: http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2013/05/chicken-anatomy-nictitating-membrane.html
So by hen they meant a duck.. I thought they also meant a chicken hen
Ducks probably have third eyelids also, since many birds have them. How long ago was the attack?
Yes, they have that membrane.
I would get to a vet if possible, and in any case, start saline solution rinses 3 times a day. The duck person may be able to get some medicated eyedrops, and Vetericyn makes an eye gel also.
Separate the drake - keep your duck girl safe.
Give vitamins, electrolytes in her water a couple times a week for a couple of weeks, and keep us posted!
