my 2 baby rouens eat EVERYTHING! if there is a piece of exposed news paper in their brooder they attack it and viscously devour it! i wanted to have wood shavings in with them but they will devourer it too! only stopping to get drinks of water. last week when i was out side one of them found a cherry almost the size of its head and ate it before i could get it away from it, was afraid the duckling would die but it seems OK. they eat there food and i give them cut up rose petals, lettuce.spinach, and i make a 'smoothie' for them with chick starter, and fruits and veggies. they also will try to tear of card board that is under their water dish... can any of the stuff like news paper,wood shavings, and small bits of cardboard hurt them? as they grow it gets worse...by the way the don't have shavings in with them or access to wood shavings.
