  • The duck feed contains:
    cracked corn, wheat and barley
    It is processed in a facility that DOES NOT process nuts. Because it is animal feed it is not listed for human consumption and does not have to be handled safely, and labeled to avoid allergies. The feed can be dusty, and on a windy day when it is thrown out to the ducks it can blow back towards the visiting group.
