Ducks are omnivores, and they forage anything that will fit into their mouths. If you have a pet duck, you will notice that they are social creatures that love attention and treats! There is a lot of conflicting information out there about which food to use as treats, so I am here to help.
Ducks require amino acids to produce the protein that is needed for their feathers and muscles. Much like other poultry, they do not require a lot of actual protein, just the amino acids contained within them. Too much protein causes "angel wings," a condition in which the bones grow faster than they are supposed to. Ducks shouldn’t eat bread or other carbohydrates because it leads to malnutrition and being overweight. In general, they should not have too many treats. No more than 10% of their diet should consist of snacks.
