What are good duck treats? So far all I've given mine is lettuce and when we mow I dump the grass clippings in their pen (which, by the way, they love! They forage in it and nest/sleep in it during the day)
Hmmmm. Well, they haven't died yet! I don't think they eat it, but I'll check. ThanksI don't know if this is true with ducks, but grass clippings are VERY bad for horses. They ferment VERY quickly and become toxic. Or so I was told many times. And a vet concurred. So, I'd be careful with them in the duck pen at least until I checked into it further. JMO.
I give chopped carrot (only a hit with a few), shredded cabbage, PEAS, any kind of cut up greens (except iceberg) or the stems from the greens that I might be cooking (chard, kale, etc.). I have tried cheerios, but my ducks look at me like I am nuts, so I quit that. But, hands down, peas are the favorite.
