Duck is jerking head to left side only

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi if someone could please help. The duck I rescued female, Honey,who is now 8 months old started jerking her head to the left and closing the right eye, sort of like nerve damage or a twitch. The eye looks fine and can't see anything physically wrong. Her neck on the right looks a little swollen maybe something stuck? She is pooping just fine normal, really she is eating and drinking too! Not sure what could be wrong I thought maybe a bad spider or plant? If anyone knows please help, thanks!

If you could upload a video - because there is a normal behavior that looks like what I am picturing from your description.

Does she do that around other ducks? Or is she constantly doing it? It's normal behaviour, my ducks do this too and I think it means the other duck should leave them alone. Not sure if drakes do it as well
