I figured I would just post a quick question instead of googling it and getting a whole bunch of information that may or may not be accurate. Anyway I've got a house duck. YES a HOUSE duck lol. Well I work from 6am to 3pm so Charlie (my duck) is at home with my mother-in-law all day. We will be making the big move hopefully before christmas to our new home so for the time being we are living with the 'rents. Charlie gets up about about 5:30am which I'm out the door before then so I don't see her and her bedtime varies depending on the day. She sleeps in a dog kennel but gets free range of the house when she's up and if we're home. We are still waiting on her diaper. So my mother-in-law tells me Charlie doesn't seem to be eating her duck food which is Dumor grower/finisher poultry feed. It's a crumble texture. BUT during the day Charlie also gets her fill of canned peas, green beans, and apples. Those are her favorite and yes she does have grit available. I don't feed her all this stuff when I'm around but my mother-in-law has a 22lb pure bred chihuahua so she thinks ALL her pets are hungry and need "yummies". My question is could the reason she is not eating her duck food be because she's saving herself for the good stuff? And I do know she NEEDS to eat the duck food but I need solid facts to tell my mother-in-law so she knows it's true and I'm not just guessing. Thanks a bunch! Any other input is welcome!
