i'm wondering what and how people feed their ducks on a daily basis. i'm fairly new to ducks and trying to get things to an easily managed routine. It is so not easy right now. When the ducks were younger i fed them a dry flockraiser/meat bird crumble. i would put it in a quart feeder and they would manage to get the whole thing mucked up with water, ruining at least half the feed. Then i switched them to Mazuri Waterfowl. They wouldn't eat it dry, so i started mixing it in plastic bowls with some warm water to soften it up. They love it, but it makes a huge mess and then i'm carting bowls of food out to them six times a day. i'm almost thinking they need some kind of trough feeder so they don't all walk in it and knock it all over. i have one adult duck and eleven seven-week-old kids. Once the kids are big enough i'll let them free-range in the backyard when i'm home. With all the cats in the neighborhood, it's just not safe now. Anyhow, any advice from the knowledgeable duck folk on this board as to how to maintain a somewhat tidy feeding area would be most appreciated.
