My duck is wheezing

I have a male Peking duck about a month old. For the past couple of days, he makes a squeaky noise when he breathes through his nose, almost like he has a stuffy nose. There hasn't been any discharge or anything out of his nose, and I clean his water 3 times a day. He has been otherwise normal. He swims normally, has a good appetite, and isn't wobbly when he walks or anything like that. Should I be concerned?

Try to find a duck proffesional in your area, or just go to a normal vet, they have studied animal medicine so even if they don't specialize in ducks they will probably know what it is.

You can also call your local Avian Vet, or State Univerity if it has an Ag Dept. they are usually very helpful with any illnesses that may be found in fowl and poultry. State Univeristies are always keeping stats and info on illnesses that can be migratory.
