    Can ducks have scratch such as a dry corn and grain combo?

    Yes but in moderation it's like candy and should not be fed as sole diet.

    Yep, but they good hooked easy. It's like really good to them. I give my ducks frozen peas for a treat. Best part is they float.

    I am hatching out ducklings in a couple weeks... I feed my chickens and turkeys no corn no soy layer that I soak the issue is it contains peas. I was told dried legumes were poisonous to ducks but that they love peas... I am confused...Can they eat dried peas? They are ground up and pelleted and I soak them usually over night. Is this ok for the ducks?

    They should be fine... just make sure the ducklings get enough Niacin as their Niacin needs are higher than other poultry...
