According the Metzer's nutritional chart they should be on 17.5-19 % grower crumble until they begin to lay.  Then they will need a layer feed or, as I plan to do, All Flock with oyster shell on the side.  My ducklings and goslings just arrived yesterday so I've been reading everything I can about caring for them.

I need to switch mine over to something else now. They haven't been eating the chick starter feed I get at the feed store which I believe is purina that they just seperate and bag themselves. I did add Brewers yeast for them and I just added some cracked corn still not really touching it whereas they were before and now I think they are just being picky because they've had peas. But I need something else for the time being, they won't be on grower feed for another 4 weeks so I need an alternative soon because I've read they shouldn't just eat veggies.
