    I have 13 ducks of 3 different breeds. They were born jan 30 so coming on 2 months old. I was wondering generally how much feed is enough daily? [​IMG]

    I keep feed out all through the day. That way they can eat when they want, Especially in cold climates it's important they stay well fed. And at 2 months yours are feathering in and still have a bit of growing to do so they need nourishment during daylight hrs. I don't leave food and water inside over night when they get past 6 weeks old way too messy

    @masonmom21 . Welcome to BYC and lovely ducklings!

    Mine too and especially right before bedtime my Runners and Buffs eat like there is no tomorrow and they will be 1 yr old end of May. So it's like having teenagers always hungry lol
