Uh oh. Missy ate potato?
Look at that fluffy little body!! (Boy she grows fast!!!) I want to tickle that belly!! Also - her pattern is just gorgeous! I can't wait to see her feathered out!!!
Contraindication in waterfowl? She and her siblings all have been eating baked potato since they were about 3 weeks old.
Well it's funny, her feathers are practically exploding out of her, and this morning I noticed something I didn't expect - a brown patch. We have a calico duck. xD
And none of them have ever had any tummy issues? I know baked potato isn't toxic like raw potato but I try to prevent Wobs from getting any 'cuz I'd feel so bad if he got an upset tummy or sour crop. ._. My mom feeds her dogs chocolate too, now that REALLY drives me up the wall!
Quote: </p Well then she must be a girl! Only girl cats get calico so it must carry over to ducks! (I know that you know for sure that bean is a girl but just sayin')
It's not the potato, it's the starch. Starchy foods carry a risk of gumming up a crop or intestinal tract. Not a huge deal, but I can't imagine a bird would enjoy having a case of bad gas! The salt in baked spuds or mash isn't great for 'em, either. :/
I'm a bad Mommy, lol, my fowl get all kinds of things that they probably shouldn't.... fries, mashers hamburger, etc. They all especially like the various ethnic foods.
