One of my 17 day old australian spotted ducklings has had bloody nasal openings for half a day. She was eating a drinking and swimming normally, but in the last few hours, she is wheezing when she breathes in. She is drinking very infrequently and doesn't apprear to be eating. The other ducklings are doing well.

Should I take her to a vet ? Any home cures? Thank you if anyone can give me advise.

Welcome to BYC. I am not aware that ducks can get ILT or infectious laryngotracheitis, but most other poultry can, and it can cause bloody mucus from the beak and nasal passages. You might do a little more research on respiratory diseases in ducks.
