    I decided to let my duckies have their first fishing experience.

    I bought 10 little feeder fish and showed Wayan and Ketut the bag, they're extremely curious my pair, so they nibbled at the bag.

    After refreshing their pool of water, which they love, happily playing with the spray I kept showing them the fishies and saying "fishies".

    Once the water settled I put the fish in and they kinda looked around a bit, then ignored them! A bit anti climatic

    So I got a scooper and showed them how to fish, once they tasted the fishies, they were eagerly nibbling at my arm and helping me scoop up all the fish.

    They had a yummy great time... Me too giggling at the ducky antics! I think I've gone duck mad!

    Do your ducks like fishing? If so what do you feed them and what size?

    we've gotten those small cheap goldfish from walmart and just dumped them right in the pond. one duck was already in the pond and went right for them! all twenty were gone within minutes after the others joined them! it was so much fun watching them! i'm glad ur duckies enjoyed themselves!
