    My dad was filleting fish tonight with my son and saved the fish eggs for our ducks. Is it safe to feed fish eggs to ducks? Our ducks get minnows as treats once in a while but never heard of them eating the eggs. Thanks in advance.

    I don't think it would be an issue though I haven't personally tried it.

    Ducks can eat fish eggs, I know that they do it in the wild all the time when their dabbling through it . I've never selectively fed my ducks fish eggs but I know they do eat them because of the blue gill that are in my pond
