Personally, I must confess. I am a sinner. I have sinned in giving ducks bread. Feeding ducks is my favorite pastime and I try to go to the lakes once a week and really unwind with the most relaxed animals on the planet.
Having sinned, I used to handfeed the bread in small balls to the ducks and it felt personal. I'm gonna be honest, I was hoping these would be small balls like the bread I used to feed so that I could give them individually and feel a connection. They are actually not. They are very small. In order to not blend in to the ground, you would have to pour a fair amount to the ground for the ducks to notice.
That is not without saying that the ducks looked like they thoroughly enjoyed this. I was petrified that the ducks would be dissapointed in me when they saw me and I gave them healthy food after feeding them junk for so long. This was not the case. They all tucked in. It was more diplomatic. The pigeons also swooped down as did the crows.
As long as the lovely ducks are happy, I am happy also.
Please buy this product if you are feeding ducks and if you have sinned like me and fed bread, it's okay. Make a change. They will still love you. I am proof. At the end of the day, we love those guys and feeding them bad food isn't doing them any good so get yourself a bag of this product instead.
Great thing is this does not pollute the waters or grow fungus and is environmentally friendly.
If anyone has any other recipes to give the ducks, please notify me. Would love to know.
Currently a family of mum and 4 nearly full-grown juvenile Mallards (I've known them since they were tiny) will literally come charging towards me from as far as 100 metres away - they have become quite tame, and, once they have scoffed the lot, they will keep following me, ever hopeful of a few more tasty morsels... a bit awkward sometimes (and terrible if I forget to take some with me!)
I was relieved in a way when a pair of swans that had been on the watercourse for several months, cleared off elsewhere in the late spring, they were getting a bit aggressive, hauling themselves out of the water and stomping after me, and hissing when the food ran out..! (P.S. September now, and the swans have returned.... oh dear..!)
The birds will take the food both on the land / sprinkled in the grass, and in the water (which is preferable as it can sometimes get a bit stuck in their gullets without some liquid to help it down). The first 5 kg pack I bought, the granules (each about the size of a small pea) floated well, but those in the second pack seem to sink after less than a minute or so - - this is OK if the water is shallow, the ducks seem happy to upend and grub about for every last morsel (quite entertaining too) - but, in deeper water some food could be wasted, unless you throw only a small amount at a time, so that it all gets scoffed before it sinks.. (Maybe this was a one-off issue with this particular pack - I will update on it due course.
** Update - November 2015 - the third pack I have bought - and the granules in this one seem to float well / do not sink :) **
It's great fun anyway, and nice to know that this food is actually good for them.
Best to start any new feed in winter so that the birds can get used to it. I do not think any recognised it, but they happily took to it.
