Is there a mix of corn, wheat, milo, soybeans, oats, and/or whatever else that I can feed my geese and ducks this winter? I already plan on taking some wheat and growing greenery out of it for my wingers, and have been looking on Amazon for meal worms. $25 for 1,100 meal worms seems like a great deal!

 

I know I've asked this before, and it's where I learned about growing the wheat, but what else can I give them for treats? What should I avoid giving them? Better yet, I know I've read some of this info on this site already. I looked for it yesterday and this morning, but I just cannot find it again!

 

There is a great book, Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks, that has feed recipes in it.

 

You could also probably use/adapt a chicken feed recipe.
