I have to ducklings and Ive been noticing that they kind of sneeze. But this morning I noticed that he would drink some water and when he comes up the water seems to run out of his nostrils.... is this normal? or do I have something to worry about?

In most cases it is normal. When they drink they also clean out their nostrils- thats the sneeze noise you can hear. Its only when the fluid coming from their nostrils isnt the water they have just been drinking that you should worry- it can be a sign of respiratory problems.

Part of the fun of being a new duck owner is noticing all the funny little things about them... Good to worry sometimes and ask questions when you are not sure- it shows you really do care about your new babies. I call the photo I used " Turtle Duck" Thanks..I m glad you like it.
