This is my first time raising ducks we got two little Khaki Campbell’s and of course 🙄 they turned out to both be males. They are just under 4 months. Anyway I keep them locked up with the chickens at night and I think one of the chickens pecked this dude’s eye! We are going to re home them because they are starting to mount the chickens! 😑 Ah, we might try again with ducks next year because we had enough of chicken math this year! But they are MESSY!! Like never before seen! I still think I love them and would try again. Back in topic, does this look mild and what should I do? Thanks ❤️🐔 🦆

As he's still got his eye open it doesn't look too serious. I've had hens with pecked eyes and they tend to swell a little. I've never treated them and they healed just fine. Other people have probably got other opinions on the matter. Good luck with him.

Looks like his third eye lid is a little irritated. My duck hen has chronic problems with ( It keeps happening ) And normally it goes away on its own. Sometimes eye ointment is needed though.

Hmm. I thought I saw some white built up there but then he dunked his face in water and now it’s all gone. I have seen them chasing the girls again, so I am separating them. I am now going to put some anti bacterial stuff in it just in case. I’ll keep you guys posted. 🦆💕

Def get your two drakes separated from your chickens. There is saline eye wash or Terramycin eye ointment. Drakes are so hormonal they just can’t help themselves which is such a shame they can be an asset to a flock I think. But two drakes only would need their own coop and run.
