What's wrong with my muscovy

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I bought a muscovy drake today and all it does is lays there and sneezes and or coughs. I've seen it walk and it can walk fine. Any help?

How old is the muscovy? How many ducks do you have? Do you have a deep water bucket so he can clear his nares? Have you given your new duck some form of electrolyte/probiotics to ease the shift to a new location?

I don't know the age. I have 2 male muscovy but he's in quarentine. He has a deep bucket but hasn't used it. And can I give him gatorade?

I would not use gatorade . . . perhaps a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a gallon of drinking water.  He may have a respiratory infection and need antibiotics.
