    I'm new to ducks, having three seven-week-old Anconas. I'm raising them organically, so I am feeding a lot of herbs from my own garden.

    I have a ton of chives growing in the garden, but I've read conflicting information about feeding them to ducks. I know they're in the onion family, but some sources say okay and others say definitely not.

    If chives are okay, can I feed the greens as well as the flowers?


  2. I would not... While free ranging my Ducks avoid the Chives...

    My ducks are free ranging and love to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Never heard of ducks eating chives, but I guess if they like them they will eat them. I think ducks know what to eat and whats good for them.
