    My duck ate a bee, well he dropped it and started shaking it's head. Can there mouths get stung?

    Anything but a rhino skin can be stung.
    It may swell but hopefully it will be fine.
    Just check that the neck doesn't swell too badly.

    My buff Hen was stung also by a bee in her mouth....I gave her cold water with frozen peas and watermelon to eat. She was a bit down for the rest of the day but never really showed any illness. Ducks love to eat wasps too. I think it will be fine.
