    My 4 month old duck (mixed breed, big girl) just ate a small, non metal hair band/tie. She seems totally fine for the moment. Is there anything I can feed her or give her to help it through? She's drinking water...

    The biggest danger is having it clog her GI tract. Honestly, at this point it's too late to fish it out of her crop, the easier and far cheaper option...other than go to the vet, which I still think you should do, I'm not sure. You could try to flush her, but I'm not sure if they would help out just plug her up faster.
