    I have a pair of Calls, Common Shelducks, and Mandarins and I want to give them treats so they
    calm down when i walk up to them, but I dont know what they would like.
    Got any ideas???
    and when will my male grey call duck get his (mallard) color? He's about 4 months old i think.

    I have had my ducks for 1 day... so I'm no expert. But I've been treating them with frozen peas in water. I hand feed them the peas and they love them and then leave a few in the water for them to 'fish' out... too cute! They alreadyget so happy when I walk into the brooder and check out my hands!

    I tried the romaine tonight; they seemed to enjoy tossing it around but didn't eat that much. Now my chickens on the other hand, they devour the romaine!
