    Make sure that the feed that your ducks eat has no medication in it. All waterfowl need nonmedicated feed. Also if you are feeding a all around feed make sure there is a water source near by since the waterfowl of any kind need to have water to help was the feed down. Jenn

    We have hanging feeders with the adjustable things on the pan. We have it open to the lowest setting. Also, You can find wide pans for the bottom.

    We use meat cartons from walmart. they are easy to access for the ducks and geese. I usually put a few cups in at a time because they have a tendenacy to spill their food. This way they have easy access and fresh food throughout the day
