    Po's most favorite treat is peas. She also likes minnows, watermelon, bananas, spaghetti, left overs, ect.

    So yes....I have 4 boys and 4 girls.
    We have a 5 acre lake so plenty of room and everyone seems to be doing fine.

    Welome and thanks for joining us! Po is so beautiful! She looks like a fun girl :)
    Look at all those cuties! What lucky ducks to have that lake to play in!


    I let Soleil try spaghetti the other day and she loved it! What kind of left overs do you give them? Just wondering what else I'm wasting that I could be giving to Soleil

    I give my flock ALL the kitchen left overs except raw potato peels, raw onion, and avacado skins and seeds. Everything else I cook , veggie scrap, ect they get.

    They're adorable!
    I do plan on eating her eggs. And I'll probably make anything and everything with them. She is my only duck, but I have a chicken that is her BEST friend. My avatar is my duck and chick when I first got them. I plan on for sure getting 2-3 more chickens and possibly another duck.

    That's good to know! I'm going to have to try Soleil with more foods. I've only encountered a few things she doesn't like... Apples (even applesauce) is a no for her hah. Thanks for sharing :)

    Have you tried duck eggs before? My favorite is soft-boiled and quiche! They make a beautiful quiche :) I only have one duck too, but I have a big family that has been happy having her around. You should let us know when you start baking, maybe share a recipe or two for all these big beautiful egg!
