There's something about a duck- Somebody must have been painting those drakes - fabulous colours!

Brilliant photo - the green necks are iridiscent bordering on fluorescent, beautiful

Thanks Bamboo. We feed these ducks or the ducks at our local park when we visit with some seeds.

I never knew ducks ate seeds! What kind of seeds?

I was going to ask that too, which seeds - I know the latest information is we shouldn't feed them bread, but I don't know which seeds they can/should eat

I went and looked and found it - also lists what they should eat instead of bread, but in terms of seed, a standard bird seed mix seems fine. I wonder how they manage to pick it up off the ground though, their beaks don't seem made for that. Defrosted, uncooked peas are on the list too...

I get the packet that has wheat grain in mixed with other seed. A general mix.
