    I need to buy duck feed (starter) on line....

    I'm hunting to find the best price as shipping is going to be a killer......

    Anyone have any suppliers that have good prices.. please tell.

    THANK YOU

    I feed mine Blue Seal game starter and lots of chopped greens. The first 2 weeks they get a yogurt and spinach puree 'milkshake'. At 4 weeks I start mixing Purina flock raiser half and half. By 8 weeks they are on Purina Fock Raiser and greens - grass, lettuce, spinach etc. They also appreciate bugs and stuff if they can free range. I have never found a waterfowl starter or feed here where I am and the feed store won't order it for some reason. The Purina Flock Raiser is made for chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, guineas.

    My birds have never looked so good since being on the flock raiser.

    You can't find it get Purina Flock Raiser (in a green bag) and grind it up a bit. Float chopped greens on their water. They will eat plenty.

    If your feed store has non medicated broiler grower or non medicated gamebird starter that will work just as well.
