I bought the chips that the farm store told me to get, however I was looking at the bag last night and it said low dust on it. She just started this yesterday evening, they did have a bath earlier in the evening while I was cleaning their tote out. I’ve already almost lost her once, they said she wouldn’t make it through the night with the bigger ducks, which was actually the same age as her so I took her home and let her play with the other ones we just bought and they soaked her and she almost died, so she’s pretty special to me. I clean their tote every day, and I give them fresh water twice a day. I’m not sure on the food brand either, the bag is at my boyfriends house.
Does your duckling have this all the time? sometimes when they drink water it can happen and feed and bedding can be dusty and cause sneezing
What are you using for bedding and what feed. and if you can a pic of your duckling.
Any other drainage coming from eyes.
How are you keeping them?
I will take all the information I can get!! Here is a picture of their home for now, until Friday anyways then they’ll have a bigger pen to play in. She is the absolute sweetest Ducky ever! She loves to be held and she loves to snuggle too!Bath in nice warm water? for now I would put some Apple cider vinegar into their drinking water 1 Tab to 1 gallon of water this is a really good tonic for water fowl[us to] and can kill some bacteria. If she keeps it up with drainage and sneezing then you may want to seek out a good vet for antibiotics. But see how the ACV does and you can also get some Poultry Nutri Drench and add this to their drinking water separate from the ACV water. a good boost of vitamins can help too. Are you using duck starter or chick starter.If chick they need some extra niacin since chick start doesn't have the amount ducklings need to give them strong legs. So I suggest some Brewers yeast [not baking yeast] or Nutritional yeast sprinkled over their feed at 1 tab per cup of feed. Until they are 10 weeks old.
I know this is a lot to take in but hopefully it will help.
I went home and checked on them and she’s not sneezing now and her bill wasn’t runny. I am going to put them in a larger tote when I get home today. This is the stuff that I use, and I went and bought the ACV and the Niacin and already started that.Here is some info on other options for getting niacin into your ducklings
