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 Floating 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 pellets onto the surface of 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 forage for food under the surface of the water, meaning all of the feed will be eaten and none will go to waste. It is advisable to wait until all the feed has been eaten before adding more to avoid overcrowding or contaminating the water.
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 yet paradoxically malnourished. This is due to the bread making the animal feel full even when they haven't had all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals needed to stay healthy. It is much better to give them nutritional food!
What are Swan and Duck Pellets made from?
Our pellets contain wheat, wheatfeed, soya, whole maize, fish meal and soya oil.
