Seems Ducks and Geese can get a condition called "Sticky Eye"
One main cause is not having a waterer deep enough for them to dip their entire bill into
What waterer are you using?
A cake pan and cooling rack inside a rubbermaid tub work well to help catch
excess water and feed for an easy clean up in the brooder. Its important to keep the brooder dry!
Cut jugs at the base level of the chicks neck so they can drink
and if they do get inside the jug it wont be over their heads.
Just big enough to get their head in and out comfortably.
And throw the lid out, DONT put it on the jug!
Make a new jug every week or as needed, Ducklings GROW FAST!
