    I have 3 week old duckilings and was wondering what I could give them as a treat. I already give them a scrambled egg in the morning and a small bowl of green beans or peas that are in tiny pieces in 2 inches of water. What else could I give them?

    They have all the duck strarted feed that they want and I change out their 1 gallon waterer twice a day.

    Mine ate almost any greens at that age. They are about 7 weeks and gave them strawberries yesterday, they loved them!

    Most anything besides chocolate or onions/garlic. Or too much of one thing obviously. I'm all for feeding treats, just don't go overboard and let them have nothing but treats, which could throw off their digestive system and possibly give them diarrhea.

    I'm going to fill the tub someday and give my duckling some veggies to dive for, just not sure when! [​IMG]
