So, my Scovie drake turned into Rocky Balboa

    I have a mixed coop. Chickens, a pair of ducks and a pair of geese. I ended up having to move my ducks to the garage honeymoon suite because I walked in on the geese (the goose too, not just the gander) beating the snot out of him! They bloodied up his head pretty good and gave him a swollen eye (Yo! Adrian!). [​IMG]

    I treated him with some neosporin and he seems to be doing much better (he was moping a bit...his pride was hurt, I think). But, he's eating, drinking and pooping well and he's finally starting to he-haw honk some and preening himself.

    So long as he's acting normally, should I continue to treat his eye or is it better just to leave him be?

    Thanks.

    If there is an injury to his eye I'd keep treating. If it is swelling from being hit not a cut or laceration than I'd keep an eye on it.

    I had geese. Then they attacked my week old ducklings. The geese went to the freezer.
