    I've never done it myself, but I knew a guy once who fed his ducks fresh sunfish every time he went fishing. Never seemed to hurt them, and they seemed to like it.

    They are on grower pellets and I'm giving the cabbage, sweetcorn, peas and all that other good stuff you guys talk about. I was thinking for the odd treat? my concern is that they are not getting enough protein or calcium. Don't want to do anything wrong :)

    What about giving them eggs with the shell? For the protein and calcium?
