That is odd, why would his nostrils clog up?
Baby drake has been fine nostril wise.
I am giving him a week, then I will stop worrying about him.
But, he is looking good.

Crazy climate shifting about.
Up here we keep dancing around freezing. The ice us WILD bad. Yesterday I needed a kid to grab my hand, I had zero traction and was standing still...couldn't go towards the car, or back towards the front stoop for a better run at the car.
The years when we hit -10F for weeks on end..... Misty dreams

Will it hold up, I sure hope (think?) so. After all, if a shark can get caught in one, I'd think it'll keep an eagle away from my ducks and chickens.
You will be on the coast. There should be MOUNTAINS of free
fishing net at every boat supply place and dump site.
But, canuk is correct. Wet snow will pull it down like no ones business.
However, it would make an excellent temporary top for your runs, or summer only top. You could use it over a "only for summer" pasture.
Except coons..... Will you have those?
