My Muscovy ducks are “puking” this clear mucus stuff out of their nostrils and mouth. When I try and pick them up they “puke” all over me, just sometimes.
I’m thinking that it’s just self defense?
If you guys can help me figure what it is, that would be helpful!!
Thank you!

How old are they? Do they have water deep enough to dunk their heads in?
Pooping is the defense when they are stressed.

They have a whole kiddy pool and they can dunk their heads in, Ive seen them do it.
I’m not sure how old they are, I’ll try and figure that out, they are surely older than a month.

My ducks Muscovy will drip water out of their nares and mouth since they spend so much time at the water buckets. What was posted is true the crop full of feed and water if pressed will come back up

My friends ducklings would spew this Puke stuff out of there crop as they would shake there heads. Maybe stuff extra in there crop....but yes don't apply pressure to the crop.
