    My female Mallard is coughing and has a soar voice when she talks for the past 5 days. She was been molting heavily for the past week and her water dishes are heavy with down feathers. She's been drinking a lot of water too which is good.

    So far I have been giving her feed, lettuce, tomatoes and strawberries.

    Any other suggestions to help her feel better.
    I will take her to the vet later this week but I can't go right away due to work.

    How's your duck doing? There's a thread discussing coughing in ducks here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/285714/coughing-duck-is-it-serious.

    Hope she's on the mend.
