    Hi all, can anyone give me an idea of whether ducks, chickens & turkeys can all be fed the same ration?

    I currently feed my chooks n ducks a duck grower pellet and am wondering if our 3 new turkeys (destined for the xmas table) would be ok on this ration too.

    I understand they need more protein than ducks n chooks, would I be able to up their protein levels by adding to the above ration?

    Many thanks in advance x

    I am not familiar with the feed you all available across the pond however a turkey isn't a waterfowl and has different nutritional needs than a duck.

    I suggest you feed it out with a gamebird feed higher in protein. As this turkey is destined for your table he should be well fed to be the best offering.​
