    hello everyone, just being a suspicious mother.. want to know if my ducks are been fed with the right food. the following are what they eat regularly :-

    Lettuce (everyday)
    Parsley leaves ( two days a week)
    corn, peas feed
    chicken (boiled )
    eggs
    spinach and other greens
    water with niacin

    is this good? or must i add anymore ?? advise needed please

    Ducks do not need that much corn in their diet and spinach stops the body from absorbing calcium....Lettuce a few times a week is okay but can cause the poops to be watery.....

    This is how I feed my Ducks.......Daily they get Duck finisher, oat and barley crumble and classic hen scratch it has way less corn....I mix it all up......

    Every couple of days or so I make a soupy salad out of romain lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, peas, cooked apple, grated carrot, cabbage, broccoli and watermelon ...I use what ever is on hand.....


    Best wishes.....:)


    Cheers!
