    What's wrong with your ducks? I raise mine on a chick starter. Make sure your feed is fresh to avoid vitamin deficiencies.

    Do you have a water dish deep enough for then to submerge their bills and clean their nostrils out?

    Game feed should have niacin in it I believe. Check it, I think the issue is it also supplies protein and too much of that is worrisome. So you want to 50/50mix your game feed and chick starter.
