I just saw a duckling eat a bee, she’s about 4 weeks old. She is acting normal, should I be concerned?
Also, there’s ants all over because of the water the ducklings spill all the time, should I do something about it?
New duck mom here. I appreciate any input.
Thanks ❤️

About your bee situation my turkeys eat bees ALL THE TIME!🤦🏽‍♀️ One of them even got stung in the mouth! But it’s fine if they eat bees so long as they don’t get stung then swollen!😉 I’m not sure on your ant situation but if it doesn’t cause any problems I would say it’s fine!😉 Not much you can do about them because I think they would be around even if water wasn’t being spilled!😉

This is great info, I was just about to post this question and came across the thread. We have several areas of ground bees and while I wouldn't just lead the ducks over to them right off the bat, it would be nice to know if they can chomp them down without too much worry....
