    Quote:I have used oats with good results, others have reported that their ducks would refuse to eat the oats. I start my ducks (and geese) on rolled oats (quaker's oat meal) on day one. a little sprinkled on top of the starter feed, the color difference attracks their attention and they peck at it.

    my ducks are crazy for oats lol they only eat their feed when they have pecked out all the oats, ive been using oats since they hatched too, but i just bought a 20kg bag of corn and they dont like it [​IMG], so il have to continue with the oats
