    Hello, I have a duckling that seems to sneeze daily. I looked to see if his nostril was full of debris but it is completely clear. I always keep their waterer deep enough so they can clean there nostrils. He seems to be eating & behaving normally? Stools are normal. This has been going on for about 3 days. What can be the issue? None of my other ducklings are doing this.... [​IMG]

    How old overall? What breed? Are your other ducks hachmates?

    If he's less than a week old, he may still be figuring his mouth out. I know my baby ducks are quite drooly.

    If he's older I'd separate him, give him a warm bath swim, make sure there is vitamns in everyone's water, dry him toughly and generally give him some TLC for at least 24 hours. He may cry to high heaven but in lieu of a vet (who may not be able to diagnose things fast enough for an airborne illness) this may be your only way to prevent contagion.

    Hes about a week & a half old. I believe they were hatchmates (I purchased them from rural king). They are all khaki campbells.
