    Turkey pellets do too but they usually have too much protein for ducklings.

    22% is a little high for ducks. I haven't done any real specific research on either but when I was researching feeds in general most seemed to recommend the Nutrena All Flock that's 18%. I don't know if either contains Niacin. Check the bag for the list of ingredients. If it's not there you could always call them.

    i read the tag on the nutrena chick starter thats 18% and the all flock pellets that are 18% and both list niacin supplement in the ingredients...does that mean extra niacin in the water isn't needed?



    the all flock tag also actually says for layers, broilers, ducks, geese, and pheasants over seven weeks of age.
