    Hi hi-

    I have two female ducks about 7.5 weeks old. One of them is making a high pitch quacking noise- sounds like a screech/ hiccup.
    I only found this clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQikTmPNRFQ If you scroll to 1:40 that is the sound she makes. Since the title is "Asper Cough" I am worried it is aspergillosis.
    She does not look or act sick, she still quacks normally but she has been making this sound occasionally the past week.

    I am curious- Is this sound only in those with aspergillosis? Or is it normal for ducks to make this sound sometimes?

    Have you made sure their bedding is free of mold? Ducks can make alot of different noises so if other than the occasional weird quack and all looks well and they are kept in clean environment then she is probably okay. Best to keep a wathcful eye though. also add some unpasterized ACV in their drinking water just for good health. 1 Tab to 1 gallon of water. and [​IMG]
