So the feed I'm using is starter, made for" ducklings & poultry" - it has 24% protein. I'm cutting with steam-rolled oats ground up in my food processor (per Metzer's calculator on their site, which is awesome!).
My ducklings are...9 days old today. The store had regular duck feed (16% protein) on sale - they are "mini pellets" so I went ahead & got a bag, thinking they may be small enough for me to mix in with the starter rather than using the oats, and that it would be a good seguae (sp?) into the next level of feed for them.
What say you?
