    Just want to know if ducklings and goslings can eat too much? I just want to make sure I am not hurting them. I have 6 ducklings and 5 goslings and I can't keep their food full. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    They eat what they need. Just be sure to have fresh water available for them to wash their feed down or they can choke.
    They can snarf up a 50# bag in no time, buit they grow so fast that they need the nutrition.

    Thank you so much terrielacy, I was getting worried. I bought 50# of feed Wed and I think I have 1/4th left. I also have 27 8wk old chicks so they definatley go through it fast.
