    Hey everyone!

    My cayuga duck today seemed to have a problem quacking properly. It's muffled. Like she's underwater. As I listen to her near my ear it sounds like wheezing. She also literally puts her face in mud almost all the time. Anyway to tell it's just backed up in there or a respiratory infection? Thanks.

    Does she have a way of dunking her whole head in water for cleaning? lots of bacteria in mud but mine do the same thing not much we can do to stop them, Try putting some Apple Cider Vinegar into her water 1-2 Tab to 1 gal of water let her use this solely for the rest of the weekend if by Monday you still hear the wheezing then you might want to think about an antibiotic for her best would be a Vet if at all possible. ACV also has antibacterial proprities
