    My six ducks have not been eating like normal..They usually eat 6 cups a day,the last few days I dont even think they have ate 2 cups..The weather has changed and been very cold would that have any thing to do with it? The drink and swim just fine they are not eating anything else as I know I control the food..They seem just fine and healthy eating has just slacked off? Any answers...Thanks

    I wouldn't worry about it. Mine seem to go through spells where they won't eat half their food, and other times they act like they're starving to death!

    My cats even do that. Some days you would swear they had been starved to death for a week. Other days, they hardly touch their food.

    If they start acting funny, get lethargic, then I would worry.

    How old are they? Could they have been growing when they were eating 6 cups?
