can ducks safely eat potatoe peels?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am visiting a park with lots of ducks.  the cooked potatoe skins seemed to be a huge hit, but am concerned since chickens shouldn't have raw peelings from potatoes, is this the same for these ducks?

Hope someone else can chime in - best to cook them if you're not sure..... I would imagine you can zap them in the micro for a quick cook.  Make sure they're not green peels either.

have fun !

First of all wild animals should not be fed people food.

That said, even if you don't feed the ducks in the park someone else will so it probably won't make a difference if you do feed them.

Can you feed them potato peels?  I guess so.  I quick search didn't indicate otherwise.  But, I will not be held responsible if they shouldn't have them.  Might want to get more advice.

You might not be able to keep a bird from landing on your head but you can keep it from building a nest.
