    So I finally told my self I need to change the ducks diet... So I did so... Now im feeding them some veggies and eggs every morning, and they love it! And now they are now hooked! They used to HATE veggies, but ever since I've been giving them some in the morning for breakfast, and at lunch, they quack ALL day for it! How do I keep them quite!? Im so thrilled! they like it, but they go crazy for it now?! [​IMG] I dont have that much money to be feeding them more then this! [​IMG] Lol!

    Do your ducks do this?

    Something I enjoy about my ducks is their joie de vivre. When they like something, they LIKE IT AND CONTINUE TO ASK FOR IT!!!

    This includes peas, lettuce (in water only, please), slugs, worms, walkies, human companionship (especially that) . . . .

    And when they don't have one of these goodies, they express themselves clearly.

    When I catch myself fretting about their noise (which isn't that intense, just nine runners), I remember the neighbors' chainsaws, generators, minibikes, quads, electronic go-carts, dogs, kids (I love kids, and kid noise is fine, but when I hear blood curdling screams and cries of 'EAT HOT DEATH, MORTAL!!!!" - well - ), glass packs, "mufflers" and so forth, I realize that no one else likely notices a few little ah AH ah ahs out there.

    Proud of you for giving good goodies to your ducks!!
