    Hi!

    There is a sticky topic on this that I found quite helpful.

    I did start giving my ducklings just a little chick grit their first week . . . I feel they need some of that before departing from crumbles.

    Please let us know what you give them and what they like!

    My ducklings are one week old. I went looking for crickets to feed them, instead found a bunch of slug and fed them those. They LOVED them :D

    Peas... they are my ducks absolute favorite!! My ducks love kale and cut up fruit as well. Cut up some strawberries and they are gone in seconds!
