    How often do you give your flock this , how early can they start drinking it? Is it ok to give to baby mallard ducklings also and how long for them. ?

    The dosage varies depending on the product, but it is difficult to overdose as long as the birds are provided with enough water (in the case of an overdose, they'll simply drink more and flush the extra out of their system). I don't have experience with ducks, but I'm pretty sure that its fine to give ducklings the same vitamins/electrolytes as you would chicks. I would recommend giving your ducklings vitamins/electrolytes in their water for a week or two, and then stop if you want.
