Thread: Duck feeder

    Duck feeder

    Is there any way to have more than one duck show up at a time when you fill the feeder? Just curious.

    Sure, in theory . The products you can feed them with shows how many feathers you can get.

    Bread 1-2 normal
    Bagel 1-3 normal; 0-1 colorful
    Banana bread 2-4 normal; 1-2 colorful

    The normal feathers tell you how many ducks you can get with a particular product. Now, the colorful tells you how many of those that show up can also give you colorful feathers. That's just mean that the duck has a green neck (I think it's green XD) and it gives both a normal and colorful feather. I am pretty sure you know all of this though, but I am bored so I wrote something.

    But the thing is, that they nerfed the chances a while ago. I think it was around when the otters were introduced to the game. And now, even with banana bread a lot of the times we get only 2 ducks, which is a total BS... On windows we don't have the otters yet, and it's much easier to get feathers. There, you can get colorful feathers even with bread! Also, bagel usually gives 2 and banana bread gives 3 and even 4 quite often.

    PS : I have been using bread only for a while now and it works quite nice for me. I just store like 20 at all times. If I need colorful, then I use something else or check the market. But mostly bread. Also, when you get a second feeder, your life becomes a little easier. Although that down feather factory is annoying...

    I pretty much always feed banana bread and three ducks would be typical for me. Sometimes it's only two, but I do still sometimes get 4 ducks maybe once in 7 or 8 feedings.

    I just checked my ponds and one had three ducks (one green head) and the other had three ducks (two green heads). I collected from the first and got three ducks (two green heads). Especially after building the down factory, I use a lot of the white feathers and it feels like a waste of time to feed them anything else now. I buy banana bread from Raja a lot.

    I don't think I get 4 nearly as often as when the ducks were first added, but pretty sure they are showing up more often now than a few months ago.

    Glad to hear others are having the same issue. When the ducks were first introduced there were so many blue feathers it was difficult to use them up. When a friend occasionally asked for white feathers, I always had plenty. Now I have to be stingy because I am getting fewer. I usually use bagels but do buy banana bread from the grocer when my blue feathers are low.

    I always use Banana Bread fir feeding.
    I tend to get 3 ducks in one feeder and 2 in the other, with the occasional 4 ducks thrown in.
    I usually get one blue feather each time, and occasionally 2.
    I haven’t built the down factory and have no intention of doing so lol, thus I only use the feathers to make other items, such as the Tyrolean Hat,
    Or to fill planes and trains.

    I don't think it matters. I've had an additional duck arrive after closing sometimes.

    Like Mayfield said, doesn't matter. I've tested that too before. You have to wait like 5 seconds, before you can confirm how many you get, but doesn't matter what you do after you used up a product. You can stay and watch, or you can leave. Many times I just used a banana bread, saw one duck flying in, then I clicked quickly away, wait a few seconds, then check it again and would you look at that, 3-4 ducks.
    But either way I still get more on windows Especially colorful...
