Dirty Nose

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have had my two pekin ducks for roughly a month and have noticed that their noses are clogged with what looks to me like dirt. I didn't want to try and get it out myself because I don't want to hurt their fragile beaks. Any suggestions on what I should do?

It may be dirt,  they like to poke  around in mud and water so it's possible.

I only have hens, no experience with ducks.  But their nares get quite dirty - but they seem to clear that on their own.

 

IMO if they are healthy and no signs of distress, just watch and see if they clear it alone?

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
