    I have 10 young ducks, 5 male Rouens, 3 white layers and a pair of black Swedish. They are young still, hatched the first of July. When we finish with a slice of Watermelon, we take the rind to them and they attack it with a vengeance, stripping it down to the white in no time at all. It is fun to watch them!!!! Bob

    i just today introduced watermelon and cantalope to my Rooster who was beaten by a dog 3 days ago he is in pain, not eating much. Simply roosting continuously. He actually is getting up now and eating hand fed watermelon and he needs the hydration as well in his recovery. It is definitely a favorite and i thought he liked tomatoes lol
