does anyone feed the ducks that come into your pond? We have some on the pond behind our home and I would like to set up a feeder of some sort? Any ideas?

Hi Tim,

I've seen duck feeders online but I don't know how well they work. Have you thought about planting some of their preferred forage plants like Sago, wild rice, duck potato, etc?

You'll never know what ya can catch unless you wet a line!

I have about fifty scaup ducks on my pond every winter. I don't use a feeder but every three or four days I throw corn into the shallow water along the bank. When there was above-water cover, a fer coots and gallinules were here but as the cover decreased, so did the appeal.
