Ducks are pretty hardy birds, but Foamy Eye is a fairly common issue with ducks. One of the most important things you can do to keep your ducks healthy is to provide plenty of fresh, clean water. Duck water bowls need to be at least several inches deep, enough that they can completely submerge their head to keep their mucous membranes moist. Water bowls should be cleaned & refilled daily to keep them clean of dirt, algae & poop. Dirty water can lead to an infection in the duck’s respiratory system – learn how to spot the symptoms and treat Foamy Eye in your ducks
