    Hi, i currently have 4 call ducks, and about 12 hens who have always been together and are greta to one and another, now, they have all started sneezing, and the hens have started oozing, white bubble like pussy stuff from their eyes, it doesn't seem to be bothering them, just bothering me!

    After asking around and looking on the internet, it could be some sort of cold, hopefully curable?

    Anone know what I could do.

    Read this page, it has a lot of info. Chickens and ducks do not get colds like humans do, and any respiratory disease often leads to them being carriers for life.

    Do a search on BYC for respiratory disease as well, it's very common, unfortunately.
