My muscovy duck has something stuck between his throat the poor thing can nearly breath I think it fish bone my nieghbor through yesterday
Some folks give their birds a little bit of olive oil to help something that is stuck move down the throat. But you may not want it to move down.
It may take a couple of people, consider stretching the duck's neck straight and see if that dislodges it - the duck may cough it out.
One old-timey solution to fish bone stuck in the throat when I was a kid, was a wadded up piece of white bread. But be careful! You don't want something too big, getting stuck and choking the duck! I would try some peas with olive oil.
If the object has pierced the throat, please get to a vet.
