    I was changing the little comfort things on my ear buds and dropped one and before I even was able to bend down Quackers swooped in and gobbled it up. As I tried getting it from Quackers she swallowed it. It's really soft, thin and squishy should I be worried? She had no problem getting it down. Here's a picture of the other one:

    Will she poop it out? :fl I'm worried it'll get stuck in her. :(

    How old is Quackers? If she's big enough she could possibly pass it, but I'd be worried if she's a duckling.

    She's about 7 weeks old, I'm hoping she will pass it.

    Could you give her a bit of olive oil to lube things up?
