We are all guilty of feeding ducks bread but today we are going to explain to you why it’s imperative that you stop. Find out why now and watch the video information too.

Kaihla Cudbertson has a pretty exciting life. As a Wildlife Presenter at Rangers Wildlife Encounters, her days are filled with Crocs and a kaleidoscope of other native animals and marsupials.

On the side, she’s a Fauna Spotter and Snake Catcher too!

To say she knows her stuff is an understatement. Imagine her surprise when a photo she shared of a signboard, went viral on Facebook. The very hot topic? Feeding Ducks bread!

It has hit a nerve with many and we felt a duty to keep the interest going. We really hope that you will share the information with your family and friends too, in the hope of making a difference.

Before we check out the signboard that started it all, we thought we would get up close and personal and check out the stats that matter!

This infographic from PBS Org is insightful. Did you know that there are 2 main types of Ducks? Dabblers and Divers …

This refers to the way they swim. Dabblers float and Divers go deep! Ducks also fly in V-Shaped Patterns to avoid the headwind and a group of Ducks is referred to as a Raft, Paddling or Team.

We didn’t realise that very few Ducks actually quack but we were not surprised to find out that when they do, it’s the ladies!

So, let’s take a look at the infamous Sign that Kaihla snapped at Wentworth Falls Lake in beautiful New South Wales.

It clearly outlines the reasons that you need to stop feeding them bread. We’re sorry to break the news, but there are some very serious consequences to their health if you continue.

The above infographic from Blue Ridge Young Birders has further information that is even more worrying. It can result in deformities, restrict flying and in turn, stop them escaping predators.

Left-over food also attracts Rats and can cause them to become overly aggressive. As you can see there are plenty of reasons to hold back on the bread.

Essentially, bread is junk food for Ducks! It doesn’t contain the right nutrients or calories and it fills them up and stops them hunting. It also pollutes their water and makes it smell. The surface Algae on the water kills the fish and results in a plethora of nasty diseases.

What You Can Feed Ducks

We have all been guilty of feeding the Ducks but you need to think twice. The good news is that you can still feed them, you just need to ensure that you are feeding them the right things. Cut Seedless Grapes, Cooked Rice, Birdseed, Peas, Corn, Oats and Chopped Lettuce are all great choices.

If you have Ducks at home, you may want some further information on what you can feed them. We have included a video above that has some excellent information. Click Play above ^
