    Down to one duck egg. This is day 19. I think the other one was dead last time I checked. I was not sure then, but I am sure now. The last guy seems active- I took him off the turner and will do it by hand until he does or hatches.

    Do you have a tractor supply? If so you can buy dumor chick starter for ducklings, etc. the niacin is already in it.

    I don't add niacin because I use this, and don't see any problems.

    I don't use extra niacin either. Too much can cause toxicity of the liver amongst other problems

    no TSC near me... all i have is an Orschlens and they carry Nutrena Naturewise poultry feeds and they have a feed they recommend for duckling and geese called meatbird that 22% protein but the lady from nutrena said i should add niacin along with the feed. should i just feed the nutrena feed and just watch closely for anything?

    That's what Id do. As clousert mentioned above, too much niacin can cause issues as well. So I'd buy the feed recommended for ducklings and then watch them if you are worried about it.
