    I feed them thawed frozen peas. Mainly because I hate canned peas and think they are nasty so I refuse to buy them [​IMG]

    If the frozen peas are thawed they are fine. For canned peas I would check the label to see if there is added salt. If so, stick with the frozen.

    I use frozen, but I thaw them out before I give them to the ducks. Canned peas just smell nasty.
