    Sometimes when they are stressed or if they have a full crop so to speak it can happen if pressure is applied. Recently I had to pick up my goose to look at her foot and she did this, unless your duck keeps it up I wouldn't worry. You could put some ACV into her water 1 tea to 1 cup of water or 1 tab to 1 gallon if you have more than one duck.

    I pick her up near her breast so she doesn't kick herself in the face. I just got worried because i pick her up like that all the time. I'm very gentle and set her down almost immediately after I pick her up.

    If she had just drank water and eaten you usually see this more often. Just keep an eye on her but I bet she is fine.
