    Hi ! I am a new duck owner and have never had ducklings before. I have done my hardest to research on this issue however I want to make sure I’m getting the right answer. My duckling has recently started breathing funny. She makes a noise when she breathes, almost like she has a stuffy nose, and she has an indent in her chest when she breathes (having difficulty breathing ?) I’m going to try to attach a video so you can see and please help me with this issue ! (Also I should note she has been sneezing a bit, nothing comes out and it’s not too often, it’s a light sneeze, but still thought I should mention)
    Thanks in advance !! :)

    Ducks need water deep enough to clean their nostrils out, otherwise they can get plugged up. What type of waterer are you using?
