See flock in Sig below. YES. That's how I raised about 1/3 of the flock in the Sig below. Check your ingredients list (since its almost never on the nutrition label), look for some form of Niacin as an ingedient near the bottom of the list.

You can, of course, suppliment with nutritional yeast.

What you should not do is feed your mixed flock more than 24% protein (not an issue with most All Flocks), because it increases the frequency of Angel Wing in new ducks.
