Description

Our Duck and Swan Food is a simple and natural mix of grains which provides nutrition for common species of duck such as Mallard, and our common species of breeding swan – the Mute swan. 

Containing wheat, barley, oats and kibbled maize, the mix is best fed on the ground close to water or can be thrown into shallow water, where the ducks and swans will dip their heads below the surface to eat the grains.  

The natural grains in our wild duck food and swan food are far better for waterfowl than bread which has traditionally, and wrongly, been fed to them. Feeding bread to ducks and swans presents two main problems: firstly it contains little nutritional value to them, and secondly it fills their stomachs up and therefore discourages feeding on the natural foods they need.

    our pair of swans have lived on our park lake for many years, each year they raise signets and benefit tremendously from regular feeding with swan and duck food from your farm, and the greylags and canadas and moorhens and mallards -----and seagulls! think its brilliant too.

    This is really popular at our local pond! We're getting through it really quickly and the ducks and swans seem to love it - so much better than other foods we've tried and much more like the food we've bought from wetland centres and bird reserves. Delivery was really prompt too. Very impressed: we'll definitely be buying more.

Our Duck and Swan Food is ideal for feeding to wild duck, swans and also geese at local ponds, lakes, rivers and canals. This duck food is a natural mix of grains and contains wheat, barley, oats and kibbled maize. If the water is shallow where the ducks and swans are, then the mix can be thrown into the water where it will sink but the birds will still be able to eat by dipping their heads below the water – a behaviour they would anyway do for natural food. If the ducks, swans or geese are out of the water on the bank, then the duck seed can be scattered on the ground.

Common species of duck such as Mallard and our native breeding Mute swan will readily take this food, plus other species of duck and geese which gather at lakes in parks, river banks and canals where they know people will feed them.

The grains in our Duck and Swan Food provide the nutrition the waterfowl need, which is in contrast to bread, which should not be fed to ducks and swans. Bread is not suitable for ducks, swans or geese, as) it has little nutrition in it for them and it fills them up which then discourages the birds feeding on the natural foods they need to survive.
