    Don't worry [​IMG] They need more than a small bit for it to be harmful. I'm quite sure that your duck will be fine. Just make sure she has access to clean water.

    I'm glad it sounds like your duck will be okay. I have no advice, but just wanted to say [​IMG]

    The chocolate in most milks is very diluted. I wouldn't worry about that small amount. The reason chocolate kills most animals die from chocolate is it accelorates the heart rate. So I'd just keep the animal calm, and give him pleanty of fresh water.

    Give her some cookies [​IMG] JK I don't think it will really hurt the duck in a small amount.
