    I made chicken salad sandwiches for dinner last night. DOnald came up wanting a taste....so I thought about it...and gave him a bite. He LOVED it, and frantically wanted more! So I have him his own bowl of chicken salad (mostly chicken and mayo).

    Is this bad? LOL. It just makes me think of the soilent green "its people, its people!!!". haha.

    Lol Mine love chicken to and cooked chicken is safe for them to eat but i dont think the mayo is becuase of all the fat in it.

    I'm not sure about Mayo, but I've heard of ducks eating chicken. They are omnivorous and in the wild, they can potentially eat baby chicks and other small animals. So, it makes sense to me.

    i had no idea ducks were naturally omnivorous! I mean other then worms and stuff. They dont quite seem the preditor type....

    Quote:I've never had a problem with them eating the killdeer or quail chicks, but I have heard of them eating other baby birds, mice, frogs, etc. I think it's more of an opportunist type of thing. I don't think they go out and stalk things like a hawk, but if they are hungry and a mouse goes by, they might chase after it.
