    Our new baby runner ducklings came on Wednesday morning (Yay!) and so far, everything is going very well. The only question I haven't been able to find an answer for is whether it is normal for ducklings to have clear liquid coming from their nostrils... Does anybody know? They all seem happy and health, but all four have this. It's not a constant streem, but it seems pretty close... I think it's probably nothing, because they don't seem distressed at all, but I thought I should ask, just in case...

    Give them a water dish so they can dip their whole bill in it [​IMG]

    Ducklings need to rinse their eyes and nostrils out so give them a container deep enough for them to be able to do that and they'll clear their nostrils out themselves.

    I had the same thing happen when I got my ducklings and asked the same question. That's why I know. LOL
