    Give duckling water deep enough to wash it's face in, put a teaspoon of Apple Cider vinegar in 1 cup water, ACV has healing properties and will kill bacteria. or make up some saline by using salt and warm water mixing till salt is dissolved wash the eye very gently with a soft wash cloth I'd use 1 tea of salt to 1 cup of water, do this several times a day till cleared up. Ducks/ ducklings need to be able to wash their faces any time they feel like it.
