It's not the number, but the SIZE that is bothersome. So apparently the rain this last week has caused some monster slugs to come out, seriously never seen them so big. Today alone my best slug slurper ate 2 that were the length of my hand outstretched and the size of a small pinecone when balled up. I'm very happy that she's loving these 'treats' that I am so willing to part with, but it really worries me...she seems to have a difficult time getting them down. She drinks water and shakes her head and it usually works, but this last time she started foaming this gross yellow goo from her mouth and the other ducks kept pecking her in the face to eat the goo. Looks like her bill is all slimey too, she flung plenty of goo around, but I don't know if her nostrils will get clogged and if water is enough to clean them out. Also, I'm actually worried she might choke on one. I'm very proud of my slug napper but should I discourage this until she's a bit bigger and can handle it? Or should I let her enjoy her natural talent and is there something I can do to help her break down the slime? She's growing her feathers in faster than the rest of the crew too...I'm assuming all the extra slug protein.lol.
