Food 'no nos' for Ducks - Page 2

post #11 of 15

I had a 3 random tomato plants start up in the duck pen - our compost bin used to be in that general area, I though oh how funny is that.

They were about 12 inches one day, gone the next.

One thing I didn't think to mention that came to mind because of another thread...uncooked eggs of any type should never be fed, not even as a rare treat.

Sometimes you can't avoid the raw eggs, one slip and the birds are scrambling for eggy bits on the coop floor, happens with my chickens all the time and none have suddenly started eating their eggs , duck eggs don't seem to break as often tho.I give cracked ones to my pet rat Bragi he loves eggs, he also scarfs up my quiters aka raw quail balut quite enthusiastically. Rats are opportunistic eaters.

With ducks, you eliminate broken eggs the minute you find them. Allowing it even once can be problematic from then on out.
