I would think that the ducks would eat just about anything. I have always known people to plant corn, millet, or rice. Although, I do not see why milo would not work.

i'm pretty sure milo is great food source. i know of several resting fields planted with it.. always holds large numbers.

I planted milo this year, I have a field that it flooded into and the ducks are loving it! The only drawback I see is that my milo got pretty tall (waist high), so we actually stomped it down into the knee high water. The ducks weren't using it until then. And, the blackbirds really tore it up before the ducks ever had a chance.But, it was extremelly cheap, I bought the milo at a feed store $5 for 50lbs. it is actually feed milo for poultry, but it came up excellent! Next year I guess I'll have to get a scarecrow!!! :getdown:
