    I purchased 4 baby ducks and they are all very healthy and beautiful ducklings. They eat their starter feed every day and drink plenty of water. Two of the babies are one week old and the other two are already two weeks old. Those of you who have had baby ducks, what foods have you noticed baby ducks like a lot? I'd like to start giving them some treats a couple times a week so they don't get bored of the same food every day. I haven't tried any other treata yet other than carrots and they weren't too interested in carrots.

    Please take a look at the sticky the Ultimate list of treats. (link in blue letters at the top of the duck forum index).

    They need a little bit of chick grit (a teaspoon per day in their food) for a few days before eating something that is not starter crumble. Otherwise they cannot chew and may get impacted (very bad problem).
