    Hey
    So, today i let my weekduckling old duckling walk around in feet-high Water. After it got out, i've noticed that it has a clicking noise when it breathes. Does this meab it got water in its lungs? What can I do to help it? Anything would help!!! Thanks

    Picking them up to fast or putting pressure near their necks can make them throw up a little bit and that can make them inhale some water.

    ive never heard of a duckling inhaling water just by playing in water...

    if it is actualy water in the lungs it could lead to pnemonia and infection.

    If you could post a video it would help alot

    Okay, thanks!
    I also thought it was weird, since it didn't even put its head nor beak under water, and always stayed on the top. It may only be water in the nose, but im not sure. Here is a video, thank you!

    Are you providing it water deep enough to dunk its head in?
