    Is it breathing okay? Is it walking around, drinking, eating, pooping?

    I had the same thing happen multiple times. keep the duck confined in a small area and if it gets worse youll know because itll seem to be having seizure type things going on. make sure it is warm too not cold

    She may have inhaled some water. Do they have water 24/7? If you can make a quick video and upload it that would be helpful.

    You can also try posting over on the Duck Forum where there are more duck people watching threads.
