    Some poultry such as ducks and chickens cannot throw up. It only simply seeps out if the crop when they have a lot of liquid in the and their head goes below thier crop. However is she acts lethargic or looses weight then be concerned. Other than is shes happy n quackin- you should be okay!

    Its also more than likely left over food. Just relax and watch her and give her plenty of water to drink! If you are super concerned in a day or so then consult a professional. :) good luck!

    Why did you feel like you needed to make her take a bath if she is brooding ducklings?
