Sari Gets Treatment

Some days ago I noticed that Sari one of our light coloured ducks had a bad eye, it was being pecked by some other ducks to stay away. This is normal behaviour because they don't want to catch whatever is ailing the sick duck. Her left eye had a white membrane cover as though infected and going blind, she cannot see on her left side and mostly kept the eye shut. 

I decided that a course of antibiotics might be the only hope of saving the eye. Getting to her is a real problem because it has to be administered orally by way of food. With about 150 birds all wanting to eat as well, it's a pretty tricky business !  I'm half way through the course and hoping it will work, watch this space !
