    I just brought a new duckling home to be friends my other duckling and my duckling that I had already started to sneeze a lot and I am starting to get worried...any suggestions on why this isn't happening and any solutions for it?

    could you describe the "sneezing" it might be they need to clear their nostrils in water....?

    Is the brooder too warm?...Do you have a bowl of water deep enough to dunk their heads and clean out their nares and eyes many times during the day?.....

    I have a deep enough water container for them to dip their heads in... and it's just like little shakes of the head and is a quick "sneezing" sound and then he scratches around the side of his head with his feet

    Normal behaviour....I'm pretty sure you have nothing to worry about....Ducks do not spread disease like Chickens do.....:frow
