    The duckies just got a shipment of 44 lbs of dried meal worms (enough to fill about six 5 gallon buckets.)[​IMG] That will last them a while. So for the occasion, I had Roxette pose for this duckie fantasy picture. [​IMG]

    Naw, not spoiled at all! :p Cute photoshop job! Makes me wish Wobbles wasn't scared of mealworms. What a weirdo. He loves minnows, though!

    Well obviously a photoshop job[​IMG] If I really put Roxette in an endless pile of mealworms, she wouldn't wallow on her back, she would eat them until her crop burst[​IMG]. No fun for anyone.

    Is Wobbles scared of live mealworms too? Maybe he needs to try a quarter meal worm? I know different ducks have different tastes, but my ducks are suspicious of everything new I feed them. [​IMG] Just recently I bought some Koi food to test on them. You would have thought I tried to serve them a platter of live raccoons.[​IMG] I came back a few hours later and the food was gone. The next day, they ate the Koi food when I threw some in the pool. My older girls had never eaten lettuce until the babies came along. At first they were like: what is this stuff?, don't wave that in my face. And now they chomp it down with the rest of them.

    I only mention this because all the duckies I have seen like various treats, but mealworms MELT THEIR BRAINS with delight. So I would hate Wobbles to miss out because this SUPER CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM SUNDAE for ducks is scary.[​IMG]
