    Every year at the holidays I make some of the party mix, and I always end up with a bunch of leftover Cheerios. I don't feed my ducks any bread or bread products, but can they have Cheerios? I obviously would not give them a lot of them, but the rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and goats can only eat so much. So would they be detrimental to the ducks?

    I have seen others post about feeding cheerios to their ducks so I don't think giving them a few at a time would hurt at all.

    Thank you! That's what I thought too, but I just want to check with others.

    And I love your profile pic ML. That is adorable.

    I tried giving my flock Cheerios once they looked at me like was was nuts and said okay where's the meal worms [​IMG]

    Thanks for the avatar compliment, i told my dh I seem to be able to come up with all kinds of ways to humiliate poor Sammy my gander. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I'm not quite sure how well the Cheerios will go over with my flock. I have a feeling the goats will vacuum them up

    Sammy doesn't look like he is suffering! LOL

    Wobbles goes BONKERS for cheerios! As a whole grain cereal it's way better for them than bread, anyhow.

    Just that one time, when he raided my breakfast bowl. Now I use it as a motivational aid. "Don't wanna come here for a diapey change, eh? Well...what if I throw some cheerios into the mix, eh? Yeah, that's what I thought!"

    Unfortunately. At least there's never a dull moment - even when I could use one. :p
