I am looking into getting a few ducks, but I have a question about feed. I want my ducks to lay all year long. So, is it OK if I feed them chicken layer pellets all the time, even if I have a drake in with the hens? I read that its bad for the drakes to have layer pellets all of the time. I have chickens, so I would like to just buy all of the birds the same feed. What should I do? Do I give the ducks separate feed half of the year, or do I feed every bird the same thing all year? Any advice is appreciated.
