    I don't have ducks personally but maybe you can try giving them sprouted seeds and grains? It's super easy to do and I think they would really like it:)

    WELCOME!!!!

    Don't they like bugs too...worms? Not sure how many ducks you have, how about some meal worms?

    I give my chickens BOSS, and Calf Manna. More Calf Manna in the winter here, than in the summer here. Protein. :)

    M ducks are kinda picky, and their funny scoop faces make it kinda hard to eat a lot of food. They do enjoy lettuce though, and our chickens eat almost everything [​IMG]
