ok, so im a newb, this is our first year with ducks, weve done PLENTY of chickens but never ducks untill this year. weve got 2 ancona ducks, pretty sure they are a pair, to start out with. we have learned alot but i still dont know enough! the drake, patches, is just eating and eating all these acorns! we live in a heavily wooded area and weve got acornd a few inches deep in some places this year! and he seems to have it in his mind to eat them all. not just the tiny pin oak acorns but the great big ping pong sized ones too! he really has a time getting the big ones down, but he keeps at it, and im really afraid he will choke or that those big hard acorns will get caught in his gut and cause a blockage. is this a valid concern?
