    can anyone tell me how to go about feedin' these new baby ducks? they're in with their parents, who eat the adult flock food. won't the parents eat all the starter food? would the babies get sick if they ate the flock food??? thanks for your help...mell...

    The parents will eat the starter food but it is ok for them to eat it. And yes they do go through a lot but they dont have to be on starter for very long. I keep mine on starter for no more than 3 weeks then go to a lower protein flock raiser. I hope this helps and congratulations on the new babies!!
