    it depends how old they are really if they are in their first week they probably wont, but I have ducklings at the minute 2 1/2 weeks old I fed them a few well cut up vegatables today and they loved it and I have been doing so for years.


    just try any fruit and veg with them and if they ignore it take it away, it won't kill them putting a bowl of veg in their brooder.


    hope it helps.

    yeh chuck in some berries see what they do, dig up some worms aswell and watch them all go for it at once!

    I wouldnt put any berries in, just my thought they probublly are poisonis or not very good for them. And my ducklings were afraid of worms when they were little hahaha they ran from it lol. They were skratching in the yard and bob found a worm and quacked up a storm and ran, the rest followed! Lol.​
