    I have 4 pekin ducklings, all about a week old. I noticed yesterday that they were sneezing and 1 of them is quiet and sitting down a lot. She keeps falling asleep and has discharge coming out of her mouth when she sneezes. The discharge is clear. I have put her in a fish tank separated from the others with food, water, blankets, and a heat lamp over her. Will she and the others be ok? Should I give her any medicine? Please Reply!

    Hello.... I can't garentee anything but it seems to me that you'll try anything. You can try garlic for fungus in the respiratory system...crush a clove if garlic in the water ( it smells horrible but it's one more thing to check off the possibility list) peppermint to help with breathing... You can also buy packets of electrolytes with vitamins and stuff... That would be good too.

    Hope this helps, pls reply to say how your little Ducky is doing soon
