White bread is actually bad for ducks. Research is your friend. F that duck's life!
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.
Corn has NO NUTRIENT VALUE! Do your research! Why do you think it comes out the same way it goes it??? It doesn't break down and is used as a filler. You guys need to watch some documentaries or something. Educate yourself. Corn is one of the worst useless foods around.
Farm birds are sooooo freaking stupid. We had some turkeys that would roost on a five gallon bucket until they were too big to fit. All but one of them drowned in it. Turkeys are especially retarded though.
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 more problems with it. It's like how it might take a few days to figure out what's wrong with your car.
