I have a month old pair of Dewlap Toulouse that are with 13 runner ducklings of the same age. They are on a 20% chick starter/grower formulated for ducks, geese, chicks, & game birds. I am having a hard time finding something other than chicken food that is 16%. Short of formulating it myself, can I use an 18% flock raiser and add some oats to lower the protein?
They are free ranging now and have access to a pond. They've checked it out but so far haven't done more than take a quick dip.
