What Do Ducks Eat? 

What do ducks eat? What should I feed ducks? Can ducks eat bread?

When we don't feed them, they eat a wide variety of grains and grasses, aquatic plants, and invertebrates--thing they find in the wild. This gives them a nutritionally balanced diet and provides them with everything they need to survive. 

But what should I feed ducks? Can ducks eat bread?

Unfortunately, foods like bread, crackers, and popcorn are low in protein, nutrients, and minerals, such as calcium, and this affects their health. If they have too much of this diet they can develop health problems.

So what do ducks eat that we can feed them? 

Ducks should be fed nutritional food that mimics their natural diet. Foods such as zucchini, peas, leafy greens, corn, vegetable peels, non-citrus fruit and worms are all acceptable options. Various fruits and vegetables are typically a good idea. 

So let's skip the bread and stick to nutrition for our little duck friends!
