    i have 2 little week and a half old scovy ducklings. i noticed that at least one of them is sneezing every now and then and it is a little wet when he sneezes. they're both eating, drinking and all around acting fine, but being the paranoid mommy that i am i was wondering if this is a sign of him getting sick and if i should be worried and do something. i love these little guys so if anyone has any opinions please let me know. i'm new to ducks so the more info the better [​IMG]

    Thats normal. Many times when a duck is drinking or playing in the water, they will get water in there nose. Sneezing is a good why to get rid of that water. They will all do it from time to time, even while they drink and play. Now if its ONLY one of them, then I would keep an eye, but for the most part, if its eating, drinking and sleeping like the rest, its fine [​IMG]
