    I have two Pekin ducks. What do you recommend I feel them?

    If your ducks are being raised as pets or for meat, I would recommend feeding your ducks Flock Raiser. Flock Raiser is a 20% protein complete feed that should provide your ducks with all the nutrients they need for optimal health and performance.

    If you are hoping for eggs from your ducks, I would suggest Layena, as this complete layer feed will offer the added calcium, manganese and phosphorus for shell strength. Transition the ducks to Layena at 18 to 20 weeks of age. As an alternative, you could continue feeding the Flock Raiser and supplement with oyster shell to support egg shell integrity, though intake of the oyster shell may be variable.
