In the Brooder

I bought a muscovy mum, her 8 babies and 2 other muscovy ducks. They are all females except the ducklings which could be anything. I was wondering if the ducks and ducklings can eat something other than chick starter which is all i can find for young ducklings or can i feed them something else. I have chickens so I have cracked corn, wheat, sunflower seeds, pullet grower, laying pellets, grit and chick starter. Can I feed them any of this as I would like to eat their eggs but the chicks starter is medicated so I can not eat the eggs. I can not find non medicated feed which is meant for young chickens or ducks. Also I feed my chickens 1 scoop of cracked corn, 1 scoop of wheat, 1 scoop of laying pellets, small handful of sunflower seed as it is $60 per 20kg and handfull of grit. Is this a good diet for my chickens and a few other ducks which are with them. I can not separate the few duck that are with chickens because 1 was raised with chickens and he freaks out when he is not with the chickens. He thinks he is a chicken he does not like going into the water, we brought a few ducks to go with him so he doe not mate the chickens but he will not go near them.
