Healthy Duck Food

Whilst it is fun to feed the ducks, too much bread in our pond sinks to the bottom and its decomposition creates an unpleasant smell.  Bread is not a natural food for ducks and too much of it can make ducks fat, making them too heavy to quickly fly away from predators like foxes.  Healthy snacks to feed ducks are bird seed, unfrozen peas, broccoli and other green vegetables.  More information at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-magazine-monitor-31903778
