    What plants or trees do you plant or grow for your ducks and geese if you have them? I have ducks and geese and planted some fruit trees and grapes, what vegetables or other plants?

    I have comfrey, and will be replanting chard and kale. My ducks really love greens!

    The dandelions come up on their own, as does the chickweed and jewelweed. Oh, and lamb's quarters (it's a Chenopodium).

    I grow any type of lettuce possible. I actually grow extra lettuce just for them. I also have a patch of alfalfa, chard, and any melons. Our growing season where I live is not suited for the long growing season melons need so I try to get them from the store discounted if they are over ripe. They love watermelon and cantalope seeds. Sometimes I just halve the melons and let them dig out all the fruit by themselves. I just gave my 2 week old Welsh H. and 10 day old grey calls their first melon today. Calls loved the melon seeds.
