My ducks love green peas as a treat.  I get the frozen ones and keep them around.  They KNOW what time the peas come out.  They will make it a point to be up by the house at 2:00 pm (pea time) this is the time I usually change their pool water and give them their treat. ha ha.

 

Keep us posted on your progress.  I may be getting some ducklings next spring so want to know what to do for/with them.

I have a few days off over xmas so im gonna to try and spend some "quality" time with them lol theyre absolutely amazing even if im not there biggest fan haha

I understand they are getting their starter feed too and if they are Only eating it they don't need grit but when we introduce other foods to them they need grit to be able to process it right or they can end up with a blockage which is not a good thing. So chick grit is a must.
