    Quote:I tried giving my Muscovy a snail once and she just looked at it an walked away. So I don't know it it would be safe or if they would like them.

    Excellent news, thank you guys. I dont have them with the intention to feed them to the ducks, they are just to help munch on the poop. But im sure they will have a good go at trying to eat the snails so I thought I would check. Thank you [​IMG]

    Ducks eat common garden snails.

    I don't know anything about that type of snail. Some snails are toxic, so I suggest that you contact the snail breeder (who sounds like he knows what he is doing) and ask of the snails are toxic.
