    Hi Linda and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. I'd post on the duck forum for the best advice, but I do know that chicken starter food will be ok for the time being, until you get further advice. The link is

    Best wishes and good luck

    G’Day from down under Linda [​IMG]Welcome!

    As you have already received a link to the Duck Forum, I will just wish you and the little guy the best of luck.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
