    Over the weekend I bought a 40lb bag of Purina Layena PLUS Omega-3 Poultry Feed and didn't think to check if it was ok to feed to ducks. I just checked the bag and it doesn't say anything about ducks. My chickens and ducks live together so they eat the same food. Thank you.

    As far as I know, its safe to feed ducks that feed. Ducks are often fed chicken layer feed, and the extra Omega-3 in this feed shouldn't harm them. The only feed that I've read you shouldn't feed ducks is medicated chick starter feed.

    Hi, I know this post is several years old, but I just searched the same question you asked and this is the only post that came up on google. So I was wondering if you had any problems after feeding your ducks the omega 3 food? I bought a bag thinking it would be something healthy to feed both my chicks and ducks. thanks
