    Hey guys, we have no duck food or weetbix to give the ducks, is it okay to give them microwaved porridge?

    I just saw this one - is everything okay?

    Is it just you ran out? Or circumstances prevent you temporarily from getting duck or poultry feed?

    Oat porridge is better than going hungry and at the same time it does not have all the nutrients they need.

    Mother Earth News has published a couple of articles on feeding your flock that is an alternative to boughten feed.

    Okay, good, no worries. Short term, porridge, with a little handful of small dry cat kibble if you have it (for protein and vitamin D), a sprinkling of flaxseed, not too much, a pinch or two of unsalted sardines without oil, chopped green beans, any of that.
