Hi everyone, so I have 12 domesticated ducks. Four different types. They are roughly 4 months old each. I am OK to feed them but I also want to encourage active foraging so don't want to give them all of their needed food. I assume that they will pursue the easiest route to food and so I want to keep them a little dependent upon finding their own food. There have been a couple of instances where I was away from home all day. I let my ducks roam in the backyard. We have almost 4 acres. They did seem hungry by the time I got home, but no more hungry than usual. I guess I want to understand what is the minimum that I must feed them if I am trying to encourage maximum foraging. Hypothetically speaking, what would happen if I never fed them at all but allowed them to get all of their food from the yard and pond?
