Can ducklings eat medicated chick starter feed? - Page 3

post #21 of 23

The leg & growth problems are from niacin deficiency, not from the amprolium. The mediated starter by itself is 'safe' but can be lacking in the amount of niacin waterfowl need. If you supplement the feed, they should be fine.

I have no idea if to much niacin is bad for ducklings but I need to know I heard once to do it once a week I do it everyday so advice is helpful.

They need a higher protein feed. It turkey or game bird starter. It has more protein. 

Good luck!
