I have a 2 day old duckling and have duck/goose starter feed. Do I have to supplement with niacin?
If the feed is Duck/Goose specific? The answer is no.....It is a balanced ration for those breeds....Feed them that...I also introduce greens and grains...Then they will need grit...
Yes duck specific! Thank you
Keep an eye out, it doesn't happen to everyone but sometimes even on duck specific food niacin deficits can rear their head. The worst is that it may happen on just one member of a flock.
I tend to keep some powder around just in case.
I am literally feeding one little duckling. Should i supplement anyway? Could too much hurt? In humans I believe the b vit are are eliminated though urine and don't accumulated in the body but ducks?
Won't hurt unless you really overdose. Everything I've read tells me it's very hard to do.
