Ducks Prefer Mud Lattes Over Clean Water
Interestingly, the ducks will interrupt their morning feeding to gulp down muddy water. After they’ve slaked their thirst, they go back to gobbling their food. Meals consist of a combination of finely chopped cabbage, chopped cantaloupe, scratch grains, and layer pellets.
The ducks have been out-producing the hens in the laying department. Their eggs are white, larger, with a tough exterior. The chickens are getting old so they don’t lay as much the Red Star and Black Star hens lay brown eggs, but they are very fragile, albeit still tasty.
