    My duck is opening his mouth really wide I am not sure why. He had never done this. He quacks fine but keeps doing it. Any reason why?

    I have kacki Campbell ducks (2) both males

    Possibly something stuck in his throat?

    Try a Tomato or watermelon cut up to dislodge it.....Put that into water.....Usually helps mine.....


    Cheers!
