I have one pekin duckling and one black swedish. I am feeding them their starter crumbles for now and will do so for a few weeks. When should I stop feeding them this food and start on the new food? What is the next food I need? I have read a lot of things online but they all say different things. How old should my ducklings be to start feeding them their adult laying/finisher food?
are you feeding them chick starter or water foul starter?
it wouldn't hurt to add some niacin, when they start laying you should feed them the layer feed, i'm not sure when to put them on finisher
When you do swap out their food do so gradually, as in mix it half old and half new food and gradually increase to 100% new food
Feed them the starter till 4 weeks old. Grower till 16 weeks old and layer if you have hens. If only Drakes feed a 16% feed for ducks.
Also provide ranging, fruits and veggies, grains and dry cat food for protein. I just make different meals everyday for them along with foraging.
