Can ducks eat marshmallow root? I have a lot of it come up each year and usually rip it out when it is young (around now). But I am wondering if I can boil it to soften it and feed it to the ducks along with pellets to extend the bag of pellets and use the weeds? The parent ducks used to eat the long grass and other weeds but the (almost grown) babies are not following their lead. If I made a meal out what I rip up, mixed with pellets or seeds, would it be more palatable for them or just a waste of time? I tried reducing their daily pellets so they would "hunt" but they just sleep at the gate and quack at me every time I go out the back door.
