    Alright, so i have been raising chickens for the past three years in my backyard. so far ive really enjoyed it and am planning to do so far many years to come. so now im planning to get a baby duck. ive done a little research and something came to my attention right away. i read that you should never ever feed a duck medicated starter feed for baby chicks. Is this true?? And if so can they eat unmedicated starter feed for baby chicks. Has anyone here raised baby ducks and chicks?? What other problems may i have? And is there something important i should know about ducks before purchesing one? Oh and btw I am getting a white crested pekin from a local breeder.
