I need help! My one drake swallowed a tiny jingle bell. I’m worried about metal poisoning. Do you think he would pass this? It was a very small bell. I was going to feed him lettuce to try to flush it out. (As lettuce makes him poop a lot) any advice would be great. Thank you!

The issue is things get trapped in the stomach such as nails, staples, etc..Or in the crop. X-rays are the only way to tell and wait two days to see if he passes it. Keep him on paper and hope he doesn't just swallow it again once it's passed...
