A little bit of gentle duck-bothering as Lucky and Co tuck in to their nutritious Azolla and corn, lovingly made every day by Aunty Isata but 10 seconds in, Shaun - that's right Shaun the Sheep - buts in with a baa to try the Azolla for himself. Nudged off and not very bothered at all Lucky's 13 ducklings continue feasting themselves only for Shaun to return with another baa two and half minutes later evidentally having got a taste for the good green stuff! And Shaun's right - Azolla is so nutritious it can feed sheep and cows just as well as ducks and chickens, for commercial livestock farmers and poultries Azolla can supplement up to 20% of their regular feed, reducing costs and for subsistence farmers Azolla provides a vital 20% nutritional boost for their animals, increasing milk yield and egg laying.
