    We have 6 week old chicks who just graduated to Grower. DH also got me a bag of Game Bird Starter for the Guineas we just got. BUT, my ducks are hatching, and I dont have any chick STARTER, just Grower... can they eat game bird feed or do I need to get yet another bag of feed?

    I think they'll be fine eating the game bird starter. If you have oats or scratch laying around you can mix it in with the starter to lower the protein level.

    OK, I dont think it is because DH and I dont believe in that, but I will double check the bag before I drop any ducklings in with a feeder full! Thanks, what a relief!
