    Hi guys!!!
    Super excited to be a member.
    This site has given me a lot of tips.
    So here's the thing.
    I'm living in the Ivory Coast, West Africa.
    Got 3 little orphaned white faced whistling ducks when they were probably a day or two.
    They're about 2 months old now and have been feeding them grained corn and termites.
    My question:
    Is termites safe to feed?

    Termites are a wonderful source of protein. Just make what you are feeding haven't been sprayed or exposed to insecticide.
