Ducks, Spinach, Calcium and Apple Cider Vinegar

Or rather, I should revise that statement to read ‘Ducks love pretty much anything green, especially if you float it in a tub of water!’ But truthfully ducks do love spinach, however I have been hesitant to give them too much because it frequently appears on the list of foods to avoid. However, spinach is high in calcium and other nutrients (along with collards, kale, chards and Brussells sprouts), so I really wanted to find out if spinach could be a healthy part of my ducks’ diet. I knew the warnings had something to do with the oxalic acid in the spinach (as well as in chard and beet greens) but didn’t know much more than that.

Our Ameraucana Chickens. We were a little late in completing our coop because of weather conditions and a family emergency. We recycled some 16 gauge welded wire flight cages that we had when we used to raise Cockatiels. By cannibalizing the cages we came up with an 8′ X 3′ X 3′ covered run and a 4′ X 2′ X 3′ summer roosting area. We read that each chicken should be allowed 3 square feet of area in the coop and the run. This current set up has 32 square feet of space for 6 chickens. We put movable pieces of 3/4″ plywood around the roosting area and the roof is a piece of sheet metal (which used to be the bottom of the Cockatiel cage), with a large piece of plywood on top. The whole thing is movable and the bottom of the run is open so the chickens can scratch around for bugs and grass. The Great Chicken Experiment.
