Can I feed Ducks Bread?
While Swans and Ducks seemingly enjoy bread and other savoury items, experts warn against these foods, which are all high in carbohydrates, sugars and salts. This is because these items can lead to serious health issues in Swans and Ducks, such as becoming overweight as well as malnourished. It is much better to give them healthy and nutritional food!
Feeding Ducks on ponds or rivers is something that has been enjoyed by children for many generations and it is something that can still be enjoyed thanks to this Swan and Duck Food. This food is not only specially developed to offer a nutritious feed, but it is extremely tasty and loved by Swans, Ducks and other Wildfowl. This duck and swan food is shaped into pellets that are easily digestible.
How to feed Swans and Ducks
To feed, simply scatter a handful of the Swan and Duck pellets onto the water and wait. The pellets will float when initially thrown onto the water and gradually some will start to sink a little. However, Swans and Ducks naturally search for food under the surface of the water, meaning all of the feed will be eaten and none will go to waste. It is advised to wait until all feed has been eaten before adding more, to avoid overcrowding as well as contaminating the water.
