Hi there, I'm a newbie so I have lots of questions. I took one of my female ducks to the vet yesterday and while I was there I ask her if it was ok to give the eggs back to the ducks every now and then. I thought it was and I have been putting boiled egg in with there vegies and then in the blender. I put pellets on top. They eat it all very fast in one sitting. I didn't mention to the vet that the eggs are boiled and mixed with veg. They really have not had many duck eggs to eat at all as I have mostly given them chicken eggs. The vet said that if you give ducks their duck eggs to eat they will get into the habit of eating them when they are laid. It is a hard habit to break apparently. She said other species eggs like chicken eggs are ok. What do you all think? Also, we are coming into summer and the flies around the duck house and food area is horrid. Any good ideas to keep the flies away?
