I have a gorgeous flock of ducks, a few chickens and a lot of bunnies free-ranging in a grassy 1 acre lot. In general, everyone but the dominant male drake and buck alpha male rabbit get along (those two actually fight). The issue is feeding. How much do ducks need in a day? Will 4 ounces pellets per duck be enough ? Less? More? The rabbits are hogs. I've figured out how to keep the rabbits from the duck's food- I put the duck pellets in a kitty litter sized plastic tray/ bin, then add water to cover the feed. This discourages the rabbits, but the ducks get into it easily. If I didn't add the water, the rabbits would run over and gobble everything down, leaving none for the ducks. Only a couple ducks are assertive enough to peck the rabbits out of the way- but many rabbits tolerate the punishment. The question is, how much feed should I expect a duck to consume in a day? They do get bugs, worms, etc. Many thanks?
