    My ducks are going to be 5 weeks old tomorrow. I was wondering if that is old enought to begin to have Zoe feeder fish for treats? Please let me know ASAP! I have been really anticipating feeding them some, and I would really like to give them some tomorrow!!!! Thanks! :)

    Hi! I apologize it took a while to respond to your post.

    Anyway, the Ultimate List of Duck Treats
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/256233/ducks-sticky-topics-index

    indicates six weeks and older for fish treats. It's up to you if you want to jump the gun a week or wait. They grow so fast at this age, it may be best to wait. I understand the anticipation! Glad you want to give your duckling some enrichment!
