    How much niacin do ducklings need mixed in with their feed?? I have been adding one tsp to 2 cups of feed/mesh. Is that about right?? The duckies are 4 wks old

    For brewers or nutritional yeast : 1 tablespoon per one cup of feed [​IMG]

    Thank you! After reading on here, sounds like you could use less nutritional yeast, because it has a lot more niacin in it?

    It has more but no i would not feed less than 1 tablespoon per cup.
    I use nutritional and thats how much i use.
    And i had one with shakey legs one day last week. Now i am wetting the food so they actually eat all the yeast.
    There was yeast left in the bottom of the bowl before i started wetting it.
