    HI! I will be getting some baby ducks most likely runners or Perkins for show. There are a lot of different things about feeding baby ducklings and I have some questions. Should I feed the baby ducks Purina flock raiser or Purina chick starter? do I have to add anything to their food? and any other feeding tips would be great! Also, when do you switch them to adult food?

    If you start them off on Purina Flock raiser they will never have to go on a different feed unless you want to switch to layer when they are old enough around 18-20 weeks but most of us just supplement the FR with Oyster shell on the side and layers eat it as needed.
