Duck with mucus

by Ashley a
(Trinity florida)

I took my baby pekin duck out of the water he was swimming in and put him in a little enclosed area on my porch to run around and he started spitting up mucus out of his nose and I think out of his mouth too. I have another baby duck too and she wasn't doing that and hasn't yet. They are both 4 weeks old and I just got them yesterday. Are they sick or going to die ?

Duck with mucus issue

He could be sick. I don’t know if it is serious enough to cause death but you should have him looked at by an avian veterinarian. Ducks will frequently drink lots of water and it will be regurgitated. They will also put their head under the water and water and mucus will drain from the sinuses.
