Chicks and ducks not eating

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Are there any common reasons why they would stop eating? They nibbled a bit, but when i went to feed them the next morning, some of it was still there. Then the next morning, most of it was still there.
They all look fine and are behaving normally. Thanks everyone

I would check your feed use date and see how it smells, it could be bad. Otherwise do they have access to range or other stuff to eat that they might be filling up on.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Good point. I did recently open up their pen. I didn't think it would impact their consumption this much. Thanks.

My feed consumption gets cut in half or more during the warmer months.
