It’s been very cold here..
Do ducks get colds?
Not colds but they can get sinus infections and respiratory infections.
How do you know if they have those? And what can you do about it?

Look for discharge from the eyes and nose, listen for sounds of congestion.
Usually there is swelling if sinus with stopped up nares or drainage or both.
Respiratory can mean breathing with mouth open rattling in chest generally looking like they feel awful not eating much.
@casportpony probably can add more.
Are you worried one of yours is sick?
Yep there she is. Good replay K.
I see drainage, but it’s only started since it’s gotten really cold out. And it isn’t very much. So I’m not sure. They are eating fine and acting alright. Except since it’s gotten cold they’ve gotten lazy..nothing from eyes tho.
My ducks spend more time sitting on their feet with their bills tucked under their wings since our temperatures have dropped. I haven't noticed any signs of illness, though. They are eating a bit more, too.
Can you post some pictures?
