    Long story short, our last little ducky is not doing to good tonight. I want to give her something warm to eat, can she have cooked oatmeal? It's organic no flavoring, just oatmeal? THANKS!!!

    Whole oats are a good feed supplement.
    Some ducks don't like them.
    My ducks like their warm oatmeal, I often put chunks of fruit I have that are getting mooshy, or ends of apples, etc. into the oats. Only things I would normally treat them with.


    My ducks love warm, smashed potato on these cold Maine mornings. I peel them and boil them, add a little milk & mash them up with a fork. They go nuts. They love them like peas.
    (And, Storey's Guide recommends them as a way to minimize feed costs in a free range flock along with oats in moderation.)

    "Warm" being body temperature, probably not as warm as you would eat it yourself.
