Ducks won't eat their new food

The feed store had run out of the type of feed that I usually give my ducks, so we had to buy another brand. My ducks won't touch it. They nibble at it and then turn away. I've tried wetting it and they still won't touch it. The store I get the feed from won't get a delivery until next Thursday. I do have several worm bins that I can fish worms out of, but I'm wondering how many worms would be the equivalent of the feed they would normally eat.

I'm also wondering if I can temporarily give them cat food.
Cat food won’t hurt them. I would mix a little in with the new food just to get them by.
Thanks! They are really sneaky and never miss a chance to chow on the cat food. I had read it doesn't have the right nutrients, but it's better than nothing/no protein.
