I have had my ducks for 3 years on Christmas day I went out to feed the ducks and my male duck wasn't acting right. I went and got him and put him in our heated shed. He has been there since. At first he was just kinda listless, I noticed that he had some swelling on his head around one of his eyes that he was holding shut. I also noticed that his head and neck felt very warm. I gave him 1ml of injectible antibiotic and left him alone for the night. The next day I used hot compresses on his eye and he opened it and he has an ulcer in his eye and it doesn't look like the eye is in good shape (may be blind) I put antibiotic ointment in the ulcerated eye, and gave him 1ml of injectible antibiotic. I have been unable to get him to eat or drink. Today the third day the swelling is gone, the warmth is gone, ulcerated eye is open, but now he is acting neurological and I noticed that now he has a blood spot in his good eye! He was perfectly fine on Christmas Eve morning but I was gone all day so I don't know what may have happened while I was gone. He does have a liking for picking fights with our rooster. His neurological signs are head turning to one side, only walking to one side, toenails curled, he almost seems as if he's had a stroke. I don't know what else to do. He hasn't eaten or drank for almost 3 days and I know his time is short if I can't get him eating. He seemed in really bad shape this morning but I went and got his female companion and he perked up and was very happy to be with her (happy enough to want to make babies, it seems his neurological difficulties weren't so bad that he couldn't manage that) Is there any one who knows what is going on here? I'm leaning towards trauma as opposed to disease since no other birds are sick but I did recently bring home a rogue chicken that I trapped because it was living on the side of the road a few miles from my house. Is there any kind of concoction I can force feed him until he comes around. I know that most neurological things from trauma will reverse themselves with time. Someone please give me some ideas that I may have not thought of. I don't know why his eye is ulcerated it wasn't on Christmas Eve. It got very windy and cold here and sometimes he doesn't go in his house at night. Please help me!
