    I have two cayuga ducklings. One of their noses is constantly running, he is sneezing and his beak is cold. I have high powered heat lamps over his habitat and he stays snuggled up to me for most of the day. I have no idea have no idea how he could get to cold. Something I have noticed him do though, is he scoops his water rather than nipping it like his brother, so is it possible that he has just gotten too much water up his nose and is trying to get it out? Or does he have a serious avian desiese? I'm new to this world so I need some help!
