Locations where you can get Purina Duck Feed

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 

It seems that many of us can not get Purina Duck Feed. I would like to pin down areas of the country where you can buy it. If you can buy it please post your general location and indicate if it is pellets or crumbles since that seems to vary also. Thanks for your Help.

You can call Purina Mills at: (800) 227-8941, give them your zipcode, and have them find distributors that carry duck chow near you. That's how I found mine smile

Alternatively, you could do an online "dealer locator" search on their website: www.purinamills.com, and then call the individual distributors in your area to find out if they carry duck chow.

My feed-store only carries the "Grower" formula, so I've been mixing it with Layena to make sure my girls get all they need.

They don't have it on the site, because it's not something that they sell a whole lot of to the general public - it's mostly sold in mass quantities to commercial duck farms. However, Purina DOES make a Duck Chow in Starter, Grower, and Breeder formulas. It comes in a 50-pound brown bag with the Purina Mills logo on it, and the only thing identifying it as duck chow is the little white label with feeding instructions sewn on the bottom. Where I live, I pay $14.95 for a 50 pound bag of it.
I just made a feed run yesterday - I'll get some pictures of mine up after dinner smile

EDIT: Pics - the bag...

Thank you so much!  My feed store is so unhelpful.  They'll get me anything I ask for but I have to know what the heck I want.  Right now I've ordered the Mazuri.  Next time the duck chow!

I like to use Purina Sunfresh Recipe (Flockraiser and then Layena) because they don't have animal byproducts. I plan to sell some eggs through a co-op and the members want the birds to be free-ranged and not given antibiotics and not fed animal products. They would prefer they be fed organic grains, but I'm not ready to mix my own feed and can't afford ready-made organic, so I go with the Sunfresh stuff.

I'm in mid-west Michigan and I can get Purina duck grower pellets from my local feed mill.

Ok so we have established it is available in Michigan & Wisconsin. Any other states? I would have suspected Indiana since it is number one in commercial duck production and from the look of that bag it is a commercial product That ingredient statement had most of the things that I would want to find in a duck feed.

GD where do you live? (no I'm not going to T-P your house)

If people can get Purina Flock Raiser or Sunfresh products they might be able to get the Purina duck products.

Oh brother!  I just went to Purina's website and when you click on products you will see listings for everything from fish to elk to cattle...but guess what...nothing
for waterfowl!   What does that tell you? roll

BTW both my goslings and ducking suck down the Purina duck grower like its candy.
You can smell the molasses.
It reminds me of sweet feed (the smell).
I pay $13. for 50#.
It use to be $3. - $4. cheaper before the gas prices went up.

I can get the Flock Raiser and all the "sunfresh" products. Please note that these products do not contain animal products but the Duck feed products do according to the ingredient statement. This suggests to me that the purina duck products are made in a seperate mill, maybe located in the upper midwest or what ever the MI-WI area is called.
