    The electricity went out today and blew a breaker, my heated water bucket froze. I got home and got a fresh pail of wAter for my duck Roady,
    I went out about an hour later to spend time with him and he regurgitated water several times!!!
    I brought him inside and he's not wheezing . What do I do????

    He didn't have water earlier so when he did have it he drank too much too fast and overfilled his crop and now it's coming back up. He'll be fine.

    My chickens have done that before when they try to drink to much at once, and theyve been fine, but it always makes you worry, you brought him in just keep and eye on him and offer food and water.
