What is best food to feed wild ducks?

I'm thinking all this bread can't be as good as it seems for these wonderful creatures.

  • Wild bird seed, that's what birds eat naturally - how many birds do you see baking bread? LOL

  • They sell wild bird food in the pet stores. Those are best for them.

  • Wild ducks and geese do love bread! We have a park with a pond and there are always tons of people feeding them bread, and some feed them seed.

  • Oh! Almost forgot! The D&R out here says not to ever feed them rice. It expands in their stomachs and will kill them.

  • Don't ducks eat worms and insects, too, just as other birds do?? What about veggies?
