Ducks having Diarrhea treatment. - Page 3

post #21 of 27

I feed yogurt or buttermilk fermented feed.  My girls don't like water fermented feed.

 

Tractor Supply sells Probios powder. It's in a white plastic jar and the words probios are in blue.  It may be in the horse aisle but it is safe to feed many different animal species.

 

Steamed or boiled potatoes are good for firming up poos, too.

I wonder if also adding some probiotics might help strengthen their digestive systems.

Now I see several folks are recommending probiotics. Thanks for the brand and store info, wouldn't have known where to get probiotics except Walgreens, lol! I did offer my ducks shredded cabbage, no takers, though.

My ducks only eat cut greens if they're floatng in water.

Glad to help with the probiotics.

How much water do ducklings drink?? My 3 Pekins are about 3 weeks old and drink like crazy! A gallon just about every other day but a little sooner. I have never had ducks and we are learning the ropes!!!

Welcome to BYC! They do drink a lot, but I think they spill more than they drink.
