    Helloo!

    I have 2 Male pekin ducks, they always play fight with each other, but now one of my ducks eye is foaming which i looked up and saw it is due to a sinus infection? and the other duck seems to always be nipping at that eye thats foaming when they fight and is causing it to bleed and ripping out the feather around the eye.

    The skin around the eye is very sensitive to him and raw looking, not exactly sure what to do at this point, they seem to fight more when I come around, but it is more constant then what normal. I am not sure if it is still mating season for them or not. I know i should separate them but they go insane without each other....if anyone can give me any help that would be much appreciated, even if you have any advice on helping his eye heal thank you so much!

    My advise is that you should seperate them and get about 6 female ducks about their size. He could blind the duck and you don't want that.
