    Others things ducklings can eat are oats, lentils, peas, millet, corn, wheat. If you soak them for 24 hours they will be softer and easier for the little one, or you can crush them or put them in a food processor.

    Also my ducks love different kinds of lettuce, any leafy green veggies.

    Quinoa is pretty high in protein too!

    Or cook them? Maybe what you mentioned are safe but many seed-type food contain some sort of toxin, to discourage animals from eating them. The toxin can be deactivated by cooking. My rule of thumb is if I don't eat a 'seed' raw, neither should my ducks.

    These are all things that are raw ingredients in many homemade feed recipes and commercial bird foods. Just with the duckling being so little soaking or sprouting them would be good.
