    I need to know if it's OK to feed my 5 week old Khaki Campbell ducklings an 18% protein all flock pellet feed. We want to put them with the big ducks but are not sure about the food.

    Are the pellets small enough?

    Maybe ground up in a food processor or blender. Medium size pellets they are.

    I would give them a heaping tablespoon per day of Brewers Yeast mixed into their food dish. It will help prevent growth problems, and won't harm them. I did this for my 7 ducks for their first 6 months, they thrived and grew quite fast. Get it at the grocery store.
