    Hi My duck coughs sometime after meal . He don't coughs constantly but sometimes after meal. Is he Ok ? Or does he have gape worms. I am worried about it.

    If it's just after meals it's probably just him.

    My drake has a terrible wind problem, he always farts after coitus then runs off in shame! If I give him poultry spice with his food then he farts even more and they are louder.

    I would keep an eye on his breathing in case it gets worse but I wouldn't worry unless it does.

    Are you sure it's a cough and not a sneeze?

    Does he have access to water while he's eating?
