ducks too?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm about to get a few chick's for the first time in over 25 years. We used to raise some ducks and geese as well. I can't remember if you can feed baby ducks the chicken crumbles or not. I don't remember buying any kind of special "duckling chow." I do recall feeding a bit of scratch to all my birds especially to train them to come when I wanted and before bedtime. Any advice would surely be appreciated. THANKS

Hi and welcome to BYC- great to have you onboard. I'd suggest posting on the "duck" forum for expert advice. 

 

You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre 

http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center, and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads. 

 

Best wishes

Hi, and welcome-byc.gif

Chicks and ducklings can be fed the same chick feed as long as the feed IS NOT MEDICATED. The medication in chick feed is bad (possibly lethal?) to ducklings.

Do you know what breeds you plan on getting? smile.png

I think it's a very good idea to post on the duck thread and see what experienced folks have to say.
