We have had Nibbler since he was a hatchling, my son rescued him on a very cold morning in Jan last year with no Momma in sight. I had posted our story on here. I am coming back here for some suggestions. He seems to be FINALLY molting. Which that is not my concern, my concern is he never lost his first set on flight feathers and got news ones for me to clip, the old ones that we clipped are still there and are very faded out. He also seems a bit thin not like omg he is sick, just a little lighter than I'm used to, or is this normal when it is SOOO hot out. At our local feed store they have been telling me it was fine to keep feeding him the Purina Non-medicated chick fed since I had no females around needing laying feed. And up until now he for sure has been thriving. We have tried so hard to get him interested in other foods and only a few fruits he likes. He loves scrambled eggs but I'm not gonna make him those all the time LOL He sort of likes when we get him some feeder fish, but he doesn't go as crazy over them as he did as a youngin. I found this stuff on the Petsmart website and was first wanting know your thoughts on it. http://www.petsmart.com/bird/food/a...6-5153938&_t=pfm=shopping_cart&pfmvalue=title Would it be good for him? At $5 for the bag I would be willing to see if he likes it even. He is just a very finicky duck for sure LOL Also what can I do about rats coming around his cage at night that will get rid of them but not harm our neighborhood squirrels? We go to take our dogs out at night and I always see a couple go scampering away from the cage. I'm doing a full clean up detail of his bedding and stuff today and hope that helps. Any suggestions you have would be welcome. We are in South Central Florida so it is SUPER HOT right now, plus super mild winters.
