    It's best to have it thawed. I buy a bag of frozen veggies, like peas or corn or medlies, and i put them in the fridge. they thaw and i take out a scoop for the ducks at bath time. I wouldn't feed them anything frozen just because it could get stuck (from being hard) and they could choke.

    If they are not thawed, you can always micro wave them for a minute or so. I then rinse them with cold water so they are not hot.

    If you mean frozen human food (sweet corn), yes they can.

    I've seen ducklings choke before, and because they are so small, it's very hard to help them if they do. And when helping a choking duckling, you can accidentally hurt a leg/wing....

    I always try to stay on the safe side. Putting the frozen corn in the firdge doesn't take any extra effort and it could help prevent some bad problems.
