Supplementing duck food
« on: June 04, 2022, 07:08:24 am »
With the rising cost of layers pellets I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about stuff I could potentially grow to supplement  the layers pellets to stretch the food out s little longer. The chickens love garden scraps for example, the ducks however are less keen. They did enjoy lettuce leaves last year for example and I read somewhere that they love peas.

They will both still have feeders of layers pellets available to them but just thought it would be worth home growing some food too.
