    Worms and mealworms are a tasty treat for ducks! They LOVE insects of all sorts, but especially worms. They will also gobble down slugs if you have a good supply that hasn't been poisoned with slug bait. People say not to give them bread, but I think as a treat it should be fine. Mine like it! Be careful with salty stuff. Any veggie would be good - but be really careful with canned veggies because of the salt. Mine love grass. They also really like rabbit food!

    Geese do not like bugs, they are vegetarians. They like grass and vegetables, but would look at you like you were an alien if you tried to feed them bugs! LOL!!
