    yes he needs seperated
    and it is a infectious sinis [rpblem
    is he a call duck?
    they are famous for sinis attacks

    I would say you need to give it some pen strep by shots

    I would call the vet and tell him the duck has a bad sinus infection and what to do
    but it needs some medication immediately or it will die
    give the whole flock some
    wqet mash probiotic to help them get better immune system
    and add 2 tbsp of ACV to gallon of drinking water

    email me for more info PM me

    he's a flea market duck,lol.

    We seperated him and i am looking up those shots. Like where to get them. He is like the sweetest duck ever. Sits on your shoulder and pecks at your ear...loves to be pet! I DONT want to loose him.

    I am also looking into vets, we are on a limited income so giving him shots would be better. Should i give the chicks the shots as well?
