I have 4 Mallard Ducklings. They almost have all of their feathers. Can i put minnows in their pool? They always are swimming underneath the water and sticking their heads under also. I think they would like that. Can they eat them?

make sure they only have up to three or four a day maybe, depends how big the fish are. most fish have high concentrations of mercury

Minnows don't. The only ones you have to worry about are the top predators like tuna. Minnows are A-OK for duckies. :) That goes double for feeders you find in pet stores since they're captive-bred.

My peeps go crazy over minnows. It's very entertaining to watch them all hop in the pond and compete for who can catch the most. Sometimes they raise up in the water as high as they can and flap their wings at the others like they're saying, "Get out of my way! Can't you see I'm trying to fish here?!!"
