Our backyard ducks get a cucumber snack this morning. We have a ton of cucumbers growing in our gardens today and while everyone knows ducks love peas for snacktime they will eat lots of other delicious garden treats. This cucumber was sliced up into spears and then cut into little pieces so that they could eat them easily. The chickens will get their turn at a cucumber snack next.

One of the fun things about having an urban homestead with backyard poultry is giving them snacks from your own garden food forest.  Duck snacks can be anything from peas, watermelon, cucumbers, lettuce, scrambled eggs, and even weeds from the garden.
