Hi @Miss Lydia . Sorry for the late response, I've been renovating my duck area! I'm pretty sure it isn't a stress thing. She is still panting as of now (6 week old pekin female. Still housed indoors with one other female). She does it in her brooder when she's laying down; even though the heat lamp has been off for a couple of weeks. The brooder is in my room and I even hear her panting at night.

 

She also has clear discharge from her nostrils a lot. They had a bath two days ago and their waterer is always full and deep enough to dunk their heads, so I don't think it's due to blocked nares. I give them electrolytes once every week, and I gave them Brewers Yeast last week and am going to put it in their water again tomorrow.

 

Do you have any idea what this could be and what else I could do to help her?  

@JJpuck Maybe it's just her does she seem the least bit distressed when she is panting like she is in pain and having other difficulties? Does she get to dunk her head anytime she wants? because clear discharge could just be water left over from dunking. Is she active and alert eyes clear and bright. No trouble walking?

  I put a video of her panting on YouTube so that other people can see what I'm talking about. This was taken a week or two ago. 

 

She has regular access to a water dish deep enough to clear her nares, and her eyes seem fine to me. She just seems like she's always struggling to breathe. I want to know if there is anything I can do.

She sure looks healthy. I really don't know,she doesn't look sick,  if there is anyway a vet could see her maybe that should be something to consider.

Thanks so much. I'll call the vet I use for my dogs; I think he has pet ducks too.

Then hopefully he'd know how to treat or what to look for in a duck. Please let us know what you find out.
