Many ducklings do not need the supplementation.  From what I have seen, however, on the forum, some ducklings need more than even the commercial duck starter provides.

 

If the duckling begins to show any sign of nervous system malfunction (far-off gaze, stumbling, nervous tic), I would begin supplementation.
