Thank you! No I didn’t buy only because I still have some of the meatbird crumble still and I wasn’t sure if that’s what I needed! I have Pekin ducklings that are almost 2 1/2 weeks old. They did have the kind for ducks in a small bag though!NO! that is not for ducklings because its got too much calcium in it for one thing. It's for ducks that are already laying. If you bought it you can use it once they start laying.
What breed of ducks and how old are they? The best thing you can get for your ducks is Purina duck pellets if you have no other birds in your flock like chickens, turkeys etc. TSC should have them and if they don't tell them to order them for you. They come in a 5# and 40# bag. The big bag is $16.99 at TSC so don't buy it on amazon or it will cost $48 for the same thing.

Sorry I'm new to having ducks, I did a lot of reading up on them and caring for them before I decided to get them. So if I got with The Purina Duck Pellets they can eat that from now on, even as they grow? I'm currenty feeding them the meatbird crumble which I have to add a tablespoon of nutritional yeast per cup. I was planning on finishing out the meatbird crumble then switching to the Purina. I also bought the B-Complex yesterday as well, and have started giving them 1 ml a day over mealworms.See if you can get those duck pellets. They are easy and they are good for ducks of all ages. You don't need to mess with going from starter to grower to maintenance to layer or worry with what's good for the drakes and what do the ducks need.
The only thing you'll have to add is the oyster shells when they start laying and those should go in a separate container.
Something else you should pick up from TSC is B-complex which is especially important for pekins. They are bred to be meat birds and they grow so fast that they often have leg problems because of their weight. It's got lots of niacin in it and other good things. 1 ml over a treat they will eat right up. I personally wouldn't put it in their water. They spill so much it would be wasted.
