    Is this an injury? I don't know what to do, at first,when I first noticed it yesterday it wasn't bleeding but I just noticed the blood today...

    Looks like an injury... do you have a drake that could be too rough? I'd definitely separate her for a bit and flush it to ward off infection...

    I dunno if it could be anything else?

    I agree, looks like an injury. Mild saline solution ir Vetericyn three times a day - separate the drake if that is what is going on.

    How do you do the saline solution? Do you flush it with at syringe? I separated the drakes, but I noticed her eye is starting to get bubbly

    Yes, just rinse her eye out with it... make sure she is separated from all others that might make it worse... hopefully the rinse will help the bubbles too, but check with Amiga on that...
