Soil and ducks dying ?

Hello, I have several ducks that have died within the last few months, each starting with their neck a little swollen and then swells to the size of a grapefruit . There are no vets that I can find that will see a duck, but they did say maybe some the feed, something in the pond that’s bacterial, aspergillosis from the straw or even maybe bird flu but that was just an online “ask a vet “. Do you guys look at anything like this or have any thoughts on it ?
