I have 2 ducklings, about 4 weeks old. They are really bored with the chick feed I bought for them at TS, and I mean bored....it's as if I've insulted them by offering it. They look at..then look at me, as if saying "This stuff again ? Really?" But they do love bugs, and I take them on "bug walks" at least twice a day. They eat sow bugs, snails, slugs and earthworms that appear when I turn over rocks and fallen , rotted logs. They also eat cooked cereal and cooked rice, peaches, pinapple and ice cream...A friend of mine said her ducks ate everything and anything...So, is it OK to give them food with ground beef in it? I'll take their pix and upload it..They are Blue Swedes....and really nice ducks. They have a friendly personality- but don't seem as smart as the Black Ducks we had a few years ago, which ate the chick feed w/o complaint.
