    It sounds like after being sick for the past week, my poor little duckies have caught it. My little Pekin is coughing, and all four of my ducks are sneezing a lot. Anything i can do for them?

    Before getting upset look to see if there is duck down in the nasal passage. Ducks need constant water and if they don't have it they sneeze to clear the down out from preening.

    well the sneezing is not so worrying, since they do that fairly often.

    i am a little worried about peter's cough.
