    [​IMG]I know this is a bad picture. But I came home to find this reddish bruise looking area around one of my Pekins nostril. It looks inflamed. What is it and how do I help this duckling? In just a matter of hours, the second nostril seems to be getting plugged up and you can hear a slight hissing sound as she tries to inhale. She is starting to pant. Please help figure out what is wrong.

    Thank you![​IMG]

    It looks like there may be internal bleeding withing the nostril. Unfortunately I don't know how to help with this, but it may give you a start on where to look. Hopefully your duckling gets better!
