I've been keeping chickens for a long time now, but have recently been interested in getting a few ducks. In an attempt to avoid feeding my chickens commercial feed (especially soy!) I make my chickens' feed from whole grains (a mix of wheat, oat groats, barley, millet, quinoa and sesame seeds) and feed them a lot of veggies (lettuce, chard, tomatoes, etc) and grassfed beef for protein (I'm a meat cutter, I get a lot of meat scraps!) as well as whatever they find in the forest. Yeah, I know they're spoiled... but my question is about duck food. I am a huge fan of this diet because the eggs I get from my chickens are amazing in both texture and flavor (best tasting eggs I've ever had!) and would like to be able to feed my ducks the same diet. I know ducks metabolize foods differently than chickens do and I can't find too much information about ducks eating both whole grains and meat. So, I figured I'd ask the more seasoned duck veterans. Would the whole grain mixture I have for my chickens also be ok for my ducks? Do I need to soak them first? How about meat? Anyone feed their ducks meat? Any information is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
