    I found a page on here with all the fruits and veggies duckling might like, but I can't find it and the only thing I can remember is mashed banana and cut up broccoli.
    He loves the broccoli, but he doesn't like the mashed banana so much.

    Lettuce is a great treat. My ducks love it. Just cut it up into tiny pieces for your ducklings and they will gobble it up! As for other fruits and veggies, my ducks are very picky. They will only eat lettuce, cucumbers, and sometimes onions and green peppers. Feel free to try things out with your ducks, just make sure you cut things up into very small pieces when they are young.

    I would think potato peels would not be good. Not sure though. Peas are always a winner. I chop up carrots for mine, some like them, some don't. Chopped green pepper is another treat they like and they LOVE chopped tomatoes.

    Potato peels need to be cooked first, and must never have visible greening.
