do you use buckets as feeders for your ducks or do you buy something else??
Might get some ideas herehttp://www.backyardchickens.com/t/597474/homemade-duck-feeders
I use goat feeders from TSC only because it comes with a metal hinge that keeps my chickens out of the feeder. What ever you use make sure they can't step on the edge and flip it over.
I use non-flippable metal dog dishes.
I also use non-flippable, but mine are plastic. Made for goats maybe? Cost about $10 and holds at least 5 gallons of food.
We freeethrow our food to them.. They don't get feeders because we are afraid of overfeeding them, so we throw out a large scoop of food out in the dirt and the go to town!
We use a hanging feeder. It hangs from the ceiling of the duck shed so they can't tip it over I their feeding frenzy. It works very nicely. I also use gallon jugs with a wide hole cut out of the top to feed the younger ducks while they're separated from the flock.
