    All that is available near me is Dumor Poultry Chick Starter 24%. Is this fine or do I need to supplement?


    I am working on set up before I get my first ducks.

    Is this feed medicated? I've read that ducks don't tolerate medicated chick starter, but do okay on unmedicated, and also do okay on general purpose flock raiser (which is unmedicated).

    Found: Purina Flock Raiser SunFresh Recipe, Crumble 20%

    Would this be better?

    This is what I have used for years, it can be feed from hatch till... I'd still get niacin to add to their water plain niacin not flush free or time release. looking forward to seeing pics when you get them.. [​IMG] 100-150 meg capsule or tab.

    Thank you so much!

    I could not find any niacin in that low of mg, so I had to order it. But they will have it in tomorrow.

    Hoping to be set up and ready so I can pick them up Thursday.
