At roughly what age will ducklings start foraging? I've put my 4 week olds outside every day that it's been warm enough to let them out, in a chicken tractor (we have neighbor dogs that visit our yard several times a day.) They will occasionally poke around on the ground and bite at grass, I watched one snap at a bee that bravely flew into the tractor (and quickly flew back out after being snapped at) but they don't appear to actually be eating anything out there. They much prefer their crumbles and/or the treats I toss into their water (lettuce, a couple of carrot shavings, stuff like that.) I've also tossed in earthworms, but they get away because the ducks don't bother with them. I can't find anything in the Raising Ducks book about when they begin to do their own foraging. I'm not worried about it or anything, just curious.
