What Do Baby Ducks Eat?

Answer

When feeding your ducklings, use unmedicated chick starter or duck starter. Baby ducks can also be given fruits and vegetable, but these must be chopped really fine as baby ducks do not have teeth. They also enjoy small insects and worms. DO NOT FEED them whole grains, onions, dry bread, wild birdseed or caged birdseed.

Most ducklings eat the same thing their mother eats which is a combination of chicken scratch and wild bird seed. You can also give them fresh grass on occasion.
