    Galvanized feeders are not a problem as the food is dry and a chemical reaction doesn't occur. The plastic one looks very nice, too.

    Quote:either one would be suitable for ducks. I like the round one but how many ducks do you have? if you have more ducks than feed holes there are going to be some fights where the birds get their rumps picked on while they have their heads in the holes. The amount of zinc on the galvanized trough shouldn't be a problem, just check to see there are no loose zinc beads before you put it to use. The round one should prevent the problem of ducks pooping in the feed. It would make a very good waterer as the duck could shake his head (which they do a lot) without getting water all over the place. I hope my OPINION helped.
