Hi guys,
I went to check up on my 10 month old Pekin duck and there was corn kernels everywhere. I brought her inside the house, went to the bathroom and when I came back out there was corn kernels EVERYWHERE inside one corner of my house! I don’t know what’s happened, I didn’t see her throw up and she ate the corn hours ago. She has never thrown up to my knowledge and corn is usually her favourite. Please advise. Thank you in advance

Welcome to BYC. Are you feeding cooked corn or whole dried corn? Are you providing grit for her to eat as she needs to help digest grains? Feel of her crop to check if it is full and hard or puffy.

Thanks for your reply - it is canned corn which she has multiple times a week and has been doing so for over 6 months and has never had a problem. No I haven’t given her oyster shell or anything like that - she is typically healthy.
She ended up throwing up 3 times. Drank lots of water and I’ve put her to bed seeing that she hadn’t thrown up the last few hours. I will see how she is in the morning
