    Hey all. I hope you can ease my mind a little bit. I just put my dear ducks in for the night and one of my darling Indian Runner Ducks was making a strange repeated motion with her body on and off. It almost seemed like whole body gagging/retching or a whole body hiccup. She was on her feet but perhaps less energetic/vocal than usual. I saw her drinking some water, I wonder if perhaps there was something in her throat? Does anyone have any ideas, I'm worried!
