I've recently joined and I posted my introduction in the newbie forum.
I could really use some advice. I have 2 beautiful baby ducklings Mallard/khaki Campbell cross 2 weeks old.
I've had them since 4 days old and having 5 baby chicks too had my ducklings on chick starter (crumble) which they loved ... I mean the devoured it. But..... This crumble was medicated (Avatec -lasalocid). I immediately stopped as I'd read here that medicated food can kill or damage baby ducks. I felt awful.
Anyway I have now got the unmediated chick starter and my babies will not eat it!!!!!??????
I am really worried. They're peeping at me like they're always hungry. They have meal worms once a day. Greens cut up including herbs (I have a good veg patch). I'm just anxious.
Does anyone here know if Avatec is bad for my babies ????? They loved the old food!!
Please HELP! Or any advice please??? What else could I feed them just so I can leave them food 24/7.
Much much thanks.
