Homemade healthy duck food

SONY DSC

As a child we alway took our slightly stale bread with us to feed the ducks. However, it looks like this was not necessarily a good idea and feeding ducks bread is like constantly giving them junk food. The British Bird Lovers recommend that we feed duck things like corn, oats, grapes (cut and deseeded), peas and sweetcorn. So we decided that we would make our own healthy duck food mix to take to the duck pond!

You will need:

  • Oats
  • Peas
  • Sweetcorn
  • Bowl and spoon
  • Box

First we got some peas and sweetcorn out of the freezer and defrosted it. Then we poured out some oats.

Next we mixed them together in a bowl and put them in a box to take down to the duck pond.

At the duck pond we fed the ducks and swans with our mix and they loved it! Next time I think we might also mix in some bird seed.
