    Can ducks eat squirty cream?

    I've seen a lot of tiktoks of people taking their pets to Starbucks for a "pup cup" (it's just a small cup of squirty cream) and I was wondering if that was safe for ducks and chickens? It looks like a fun treat for the flock, but obviously I don't want to make them sick!
