    I just bought 10 male guppies from the pet store for my muscovies to eat. What all kinds can they eat? Howany? How often? Can they eat Mollies and Glo tetras?

    From time to time, I buy 50 feeder goldfish for my dozen+ ducks to eat. They go insane for them. I ether put them in their fresh cleaned pool or a separate shallow container with water. I wouldn't personally buy mollys or tetras because of the price. They're so much more expensive.

    We plan on breeding so that we won't have to continue to buy. That of course would get more pricey. Are the molly and tetras safe for them to eat?

    How funny! Is it safe for chickens too? I assume so since they can eat pups (rat n mice babies) and frogs..
