What’s up with the Harlow ducks?

MOST of us have enjoyed feeding the ducks at one time or another, and most of us will have used bread as our treat of choice for them.

While feeding the ducks is great fun, did you know that bread can make them ill?

Although ducks love bread, it doesn’t contain any nutrition for them and can actually stop them from getting the healthy balanced diet they need. Uneaten bread can attract vermin and also pollutes the water as it breaks down, allowing algae to grow.

You can swap the bread for small amounts of oats, corn, or defrosted frozen peas. Healthy duck pellets are also available from the Pets’ Corner shop in the Town Park.
