    Does anyone know anything about these guys? I have 1 duckling that survived (learned a hard lesson about chicken feed an duckies not mixing) an I am doing research to figure out what other breeds to get. I want to know any pros an cons to these little guys. Any advice would be very helpful.

    Oh, no.

    Do you have gro-gel or sav-a-chick, similar vitamins with probiotics?
