    Hey yall. I have one rouen duck who keeps pulling and eating other duck feathers. We just expanded their space which i read could improve the behavior. Ive also read it could need more protein. They are on 18% protein now. My question is, at two monthes, whats the best way to add extra protein. Can i get live meal worms and feed those to them or are they still too young? Im not sure on gender yet. Theyve started making big duck sounds occassionally and they have a little over half their adult feathers.
  2. You can give them some dry cat kibble...:)....I use fish based cat kibble...All my Ducks love it...:)...I feed it as a treat a couple times a week and during molt....
