Duck Feed - Page 2

A good duck vet is best but not always possible.

I would rinse it well with lukewarm water with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar per quart, then dab some antibiotic ointment on it. Three times a day, and one of those times at bedtime.


Also, try posting a new thread - so that the title will get more attention due to its urgency.

Mine love potato peels, lettuce and peas.
We tried feeding them raspberries and carrot peels but they don't like it.

Three key things:
1- no raw legumes. This is detrjmental to ducks.
2- if you have subzero temps, free choice food in winter and corn daily is awesome.
3- Using the deeo litter method, giving some hot food (food that produces excessive body heat, like corn), and giving free choice food (watch them though; obesity can become an issue), cuts down on feed and increases productivity.
