I bought a bag of deer/squirrel corn. I thought it was like scratch ground up but it is whole. It is hard as a rock. I don't want to choke anybody. If any one also knows if my muskovies can eat it.

If they can't eat it whole maybe i can grind it in my food processor.

Thanks for any of your advice.  Dawn

I don't keep ducks so can't answer on them, but my chickens eat whole corn with no problems whatsoever.  (Heck, I've seen them swallow an adult mouse whole so a kernel of corn seems like nothing now....)

Thanks so much for the quick response.    clap    I would probobly ruin my food processor blade trying to chop them up.
