    Drakes getting rough with each other little eye pecking wanted to double check with this spray it says around eye is safe but to get it applied properly it would have to be sprayed in eye would that be ok or should I apply to a qtip then dab around the eye. [​IMG]

    I just spray right in the eyes, I had to do that to one of my drakes this morning.

    Duckins, Vetericyn makes a solution specifically for eyes. Though I have never used it, it is supposed to be safe for all animals//poultry. I use the regular Vetericyn hydrogel for everything with my chickens and ducks. I consider it a miracle cure and have used it for some absoluetly horrendous wounds over the past year and a half (since I started my flock) and have had great results.

    [​IMG] i will also give it one more spray when I am ready to put them up for the night, that way since I don't put water inside they can't wash it off so easy,

    Thats why I always give them a treatment right before bed, that way I have the last word, not them the little buggers. [​IMG] Chicken treatments always done after they go to roost, ducks/ when time for bed. My big drake has been rubbing his knob on his carnuckles every morning because I don't get him out of his bedroom fast enough[to his liking] so I had to move him to a stall that didn't have any hardware wire on it, but now I have to spray him with Veterycin to make sure it heals up, so Since i can pick him up easy I just spray him and carry him to bed, that way he doesn't have a chance to stop by the bucket and dunk his head after i spray. This morning it looks so much better swelling is going down too.
