    Hi All,

    I did a quick search but couldn't find an answer to this question.

    At what age do you all start feeding peas?

    Thanks,

    Tahai

    4 weeks.
    There is a really good thread about treats in the duck sticky menu at the top of the forum.

    My juv' ducklings looove peas. They also really loved finely shredded carrot. I give sparingly, but when they hear the grater working they get to wagging their little duckling butts (it's so cute) and quacking very loud. We float both treats in a shallow dish of water.

    Ooops, didn't know I should have waited until 4 wks - my two IR's are now 3 & 4 weeks and they've been having peas for the past 5 days. [​IMG]

    My ducks have been eating thawed peas in their pool since about 2 weeks old. I just thaw them and dump then in the pool and they all jump in and go nuts.
