    My ducklings are almost 3 weeks old - hatched & raised by my broody chicken:) I'll get more of the crumbles I have been feeding them from my friend who gave me the eggs tomorrow but I have run out & all I have around here is the Layena crumbles for my chickens. They are also free ranging.
    Thanks

    You can but only do it for this morning. They need to be on the Start N Grow starter from Purina. The extra calcium in the Layena can give the problems if you feed it to them too much.

    What would I do without BYC?!!

    Ducklings can also be fed dry oatmeal, dandelion greens or other fresh greens.
