    Will chickens and ducks eat cucumbers? I was given alot of them and was hoping they will eat them.

    I don't have any experience with ducks, but my chickens love cucumbers. I often cut them, hold the cut end out and the girls peck the seeds right out of them. After they've gone through that process, I throw the 'shell' down and they finish them off at their leisure.

    mine love cucs and we have both chickens and ducks [​IMG] I just chunk them in half or quarters so that they realize what they are. But I think they are just use to me doing it and are spoiled [​IMG]
