You're not supposed to feed them bread, it has little nutritional value, you should feed them bird seed or other recommendations from vets or animal experts

Dude giving ducks bread is bad for them, it makes it where their eggs can't form and get solid and instead they come out soft and the baby duckling has no chance of life. Stop feeding ducks bread!

All bread is actually bad for ducks and wild birds. It only fills their stomachs up, but the nutritive values aren't good at all.

I heard you're not suppose to feed ducks bread anymore. I am thinking this is probably one of the reasons.

44 - ***they're and no. not only is bread nutritionally inadequate for ducks (not to mention humans), it also makes them too people-friendly and dependent. bread is essentially junk food for them and can make them obese. why would anyone feed an animal something that isn't even good for people?? this applies to corn, too. corn has ZERO nutritional value. foods that are good for ducks, however, are things like birdseed, peas, oats and cut-up grapes.

taken from livestrong.com: "corn is probably not the best vegetable to eat because there are many more vegetables that are healthier, contain less sugar, and have more nutritional content."

From livestrong.com: "Nutritional Facts - Corn is low in saturated fat and cholesterol, as well as sodium. It's also a good source of dietary fiber, thiamin and folate." Just because something is not the healthiest doesn't mean it's unhealthy.

but it's tasty so I eat it anyway, along with mashed potatoes, chicken fried steak, red meat, and many other things that are "bad" for you to eat.

Oh my God give me a break. Corn gives you fiber, yes. It is not the most "useless food around." People aren't getting fat off of corn. IT'S CORN. Why can't we debate something like Big Macs? Not corn. Corn is fine for you. Relax.

holy shit guys. I didn't say it's the worst thing ever. it's just not the most appropriate or nutritional thing to feed to ducks. goddamn. now calm your collective tits.

Not only is bread considerably low in nutritional value, but the yeasts and enzymes disrupt the ecosystem of the water, causing further damage.

This particular duck seems stupid, if only because he was confused about the type of animal he was -- ducks aren't supposed to croak.

How is telling a story about how turkeys are so stupid that they'll roost on the bucket we used to fill their and the other birds water and drown in it mean? I'm confused, yo.

Reply

Maybe because you allowed those birds to drown. After the first one any responsible person would cover the tank up so it didn't happen again!

They literally did it within 3 days and it was uncovered because it was under a leaking faucet and we didn't want to rot the floor out and we used the water for the birds. By the time we realized that they were roosting on it there was only one left. The bucket wasn't even by where the birds all hung out and we had never had trouble with any of the other birds so it never occurred to us that it was what they were doing until we saw the last one on it. He figured it out and there weren't ever any
