Shameless bribery -- keep doling out the tasty treats, one at a time in regular intervals. Good thing he's not horse size as you know what trouble that can lead too

Haha he does love the food! I asked my mom if next time she goes to the grocery store to see if they have any lettuce/vegetables that have gone bad or were taken off the shelves; I've heard they'll let you have those for free or cheap. Can I feed him that? Thanks again for all the help!

Ducks (like chickens) will eat quite a variety of things - grain, grass, bugs, fruit, etc. You'll have to experiment a bit to see what the favourites are and whatever it is keep it bite sized. If you're going to get something from the store, I think I'd start with some lettuce, maybe some corn (I knew mine really liked the processed (as in dried, rolled and bagged) stuff I use to feed the horses) and fruit like grapes.

He does like corn, as well as popcorn. I'll have to check out what's in our fridge and maybe bring some grapes for him. He also likes to eat all those weeds around the edge of the pond.
