    I had a friend who ate a bite when we were kids, it didn't kill her though we were sure it would!

    I don't know about ducks, but other birds eat them and ground squirrels too I think.

    Our cows eat them, so I wouldn't think it would hurt them.

    It's the "fruit/seed" of the osage orange tree which around here is called a hedge tree.​
