    I just keep getting bigger bags, and end up giving more peas....can they overdose on pea treats? I have trained them to hand feeding two adopted ducks who wouldnt come near me at first. I love ducks!

    LOL

    I have never heard of a pea OD. If it were possible all my ducks would be dead by now [​IMG]

    tell us - your pea bill. # bags. storage area. stops at the store....lol any or all of the above. DBF knows if he is stopping by the store on the way home...might as well pick up a bag of frozen peas. Used to be kale AND peas, but now that we have alot of green growing (and I read some weird stuff about kale and calcium) its just peas.

    im feeding 7 bags a week. They get a bag of peas a day along with lettuce or some sort of greens, tomatoes and grapes every day.

    Quote:sounds entirely reasonable for 15 ducks lol! And jeez they absolutely LOVE THEM... So I will have to plan on more peas in my future with an order of 8 new babies on the way! Oh and my little girlfriend from next door who is 6 years old, hates peas. But when its time to treat the ducks I have to pour some from the bag into her mouth! They ARE pretty tasty frozen! (oh btw, if I am feeding them any peas frozen it is in small amounts like a training method. One or two at a time. Otherwise we thaw them....

    I feed a huge family size bag each week to my six ducks. My ducks have a fit if I thaw them first, they want them frozen and they gobble em up. They won't eat corn or romaine lettuce. My niece broke up a piece of bread and tossed it into the pen while I was gone for the day, it was still there at supper time, my ducks hate bread. They love spinach greens and turnip greens but only fresh, won't touch the frozen/thawed stuff. Spoiled little boogers LOL
