    These are my babies. Is it OK for them to have the occasional watermelon treats? They really love it! [​IMG]

    Make sure they get grit and they should be fine. It looks like they're outside so if they forge around then they're getting all the grit they need.

    Are you sure they are four weeks old? They look younger than that to me.

    I think she meant 4 one-week-old ducklings. That would fit better with the pic anyway. ;)

    But yes, a little watermelon should be fine for them.

    That would make more sense! I guess that would be 4 week-old ducklings. There are two in the picture so I was reading it as four-week-old ducklings.
