Ducks are omnivores and eat many types of green vegetation including grasses. They also eat leaves of some plants/bushes and of low-hanging trees. Domesticated ducks enjoy eating leafy greens like lettuce as treats. Ducks may also eat many types of garden fruits and vegetables (ie. tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelon, etc.).

Yes, ducks do eat grass as part of their natural diet. They also consume insects, aquatic plants, and seeds in addition to grass to maintain a balanced diet.
