    Is it normal for ducks to sneeze??

    I have just returned to my house after being out for a few hours and 2 of them are making a sneezing noise.

    Is it a sign of anything i need to worry about?

    They do do it on occasion to clean out their bills. I have quite a few ducks and when I hear it more than a couple times in a row I start to worry, but it's usually just them cleaning their bills.
