Mallard babies question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello, I have two Mallard babies about 4 days old. They can still barely peep, its like a whisper. But they seem to be "sneezing" a lot. I dont really know if its normal or what I should di. Other ducks I own and a gosling never did this.

I don't know that much about Mallard ducklings but here is the Mallard thread.

Sometimes the dust in bedding or feed can cause sneezing. Are they eating and drinking and acting healthy other wise?

The more time you spend just being there talking softly to them will help. Can you imagine how humongous we look to those lil creatures. lol and they have no idea if we're going to snatch them up and eat them at any second.
