    So are these ducky crack or what???

    For our 3 week old celebration I thought i'd try peas since so many of you talk about how much your duckies like them. OMG! They were gone in like 2 minutes and then the ducks were running in circles around the pan of pea water...they were running so fast they were slipping and sliding and falling on their backs....ive never seen them do that before. They seem to like them, but Ive never had to clean up such a huge mess as I did after they were done splashing and falling all over the place. I think peas my be and outdoor treat only! Is there anything else that has this affect on the duckies? I wish i had my camera. [​IMG]

    you can give them peas seperate from their waterer, just have water handy so they can go get a drink when needed...

    Or peas during bath time is fun!

    just bought a bag of frozen ones for 78 cents. I think i read on here that canned peas have too much salt.
