I noticed one of the ducks had a little something in one nostril and thought perhaps it was some food. It's the color of the crumbles I'm giving them. Then noticed three of the ducks have this happening in just one nostril each. Of course, came on here to research and read up on potential situations and how to handle it. I tried clearing the nostril with a tooth pick. Tried taking a wet cotton swab to wipe it. Used a turkey baster to blow water into the nostril and then try to suck it out. Put the duck in a deeper warm water bath in the bathroom sink to try and get it to clear naturally. Didn't work. This seemed useless as they have water deep enough to submerge their beaks in the brooder anyways.
They're all acting normally. Eating and drinking. Bathing when I let them. There are a few sneezes here and there. More than the other day when I posted asking about sneezes. But everything I've read here says a stuffed up nostril is no good and needs to be addressed. I feel at a loss for clearing their nostrils. Does the picture below look like something bad? Is there a medicine I should be administering?
