We got our first pair of Wood ducks yesterday. They seem fine with the Teal. Does anyone have any suggestions on what snacks they might like? The other ducks love peas but the Woodies don't seem to care for them.

Welcome to BYC! Congratulations on the new birds! Very beautiful!

Hopefully someone with more experience comes along to give some tips with this particular breed. I know my ducks really enjoy mealworms! The woodies might love them too!

My woodies aren't crazy about peas either. They love grapes (I cut them in quarters), apples (again, small pieces). And mine also LOVE cooked butternut squash. I quarter the whole squash and bake it, seeds and all. Then I dole out a couple slices at a time for the ducks and chickens.
