There are many reasons why you shouldn't feed bread to ducks. Feeding bread alone causes severe malnutrition and illness in ducks, and it's also responsible for destroying duck habitats. Say boo to the bread!
Ducks eat a specific and naturally diverse diet of plants, seeds and insect protein. But for a long time they had to make do with generic poultry pellets or, worse yet, unhealthy bread. Given the popularity of feeding wild ducks and the increasing number of New Zealanders who keep backyard ducks, we decided it was time for to create a specific feed for ducks.
Developed alongside an avian nutrition expert, Lucky Duck was made to provide a wholesome alternative to bread. This feed works best as a maintenance diet for both wild ducks and backyard ducks.
