    as long as the parrot toy does not have the calcium blocks on it, or will not come apart, the ducks can try them... Now as to whether or not they'll like them, is completely up to the duck. lol. ducks are finicky animals and while one may love a certain toy, another won't touch it.

    It's also best to have several toys you can switch out. By switching the toys every week or so, it keeps things fresh and new for them.
  3. my ducks LOVE fresh straw, especially when it's stuck together right from the bale... they wibble their noses in it, keeps them occupied for a long time! Also, they love when I pour a bucket of water on the ground, stick their noses right in too... and it's cheap too!

    Ducks are 100% prey. Anything new is terrifying and very likely to eat them.
