    Hay all I have one of my ducks that was bit by a spider and she was starting to loss muscle control. Do you think it would be OK to eat her.

    So she died, then? I don't know how safe it would be to eat the meat. Not to be pushy, but did you see the spider or might it have been botulism?

    I didn't see the spider are the bit just thought that's what it was. I put her down couldn't stand to see her like that. She had been setting on eggs, so she wasn't moving a lot.
