We decided to go to our local Reber Ranch and adopt a duckling in the case that our egg doesn't hatch- And if it does- No biggie, he just has a pal. Well, we got one 2 days ago, and when we woke up yesterday morning it was dead. It seems that it had become "waterlogged" because through the day it had been wheezing, sneezing, crying for no reason, not being able to sleep, and water coming from it's nose. When we tried to give it CPR, water came out of it's nose as well. We got ANOTHER duckling yesterday after finding the one we had just adopted dead, but this time we have been giving her very shallow water so it can't get it's nostrils in and suffer the same fate as the last duckling. The last duckling had submerged it's face in the water A LOT so we think that's what caused the water logging and we're trying to prevent that. But, this duckling seems to have water coming from it's nostrils occasionally(Not nearly as often as the last duckling) even though she's not able to get her nose under water. So, is this normal? Should I be worried that this one's going to die on us too? I don't understand, we give her VERY shallow water, is she suppose to just not drink!? Why is her nose leaking? Also, I've heard that ducks are suppose to have enough water to clean their nostrils and eyes, but that completely contradicts the whole waterlogging thing, so why did the last one die?! What should I do, I just don't get it... Sorry, I'm so oblivious, everything just seems to be going wrong in my little duckie world no matter how hard I try... I've done tons of research and do everything I'm suppose to. To be honest, I'm slightly traumatized after finding my first duckling dead.. So but, can anyone explain to me this water situation? Thanks!
