I’m new and looking to get ducks. Been doing some reading and for the most part I’ve saw Purina Flock Raiser and nutrena all flock has been brought up a lot. I know the importance of niacin and grit and when laying eggs.. calcium. My question was, I saw some articles on growing fodder and feeding with the fodder. From what I’ve seen, they are feeding with just the fodder (wheat/barley) and just substituting with grit and calcium. Is this legit? I was looking at raising mealworms as well.

I don't have duck, but still want to offer you my opinion. Free of course.:frow
I feed my chickens Alflock, which is comparable to what you posted above. It is balanced nutrition, which should work for ducks just fine. As to the niacin portion,,,, well I'm sure it has some of it included. I'm not sure if it is the IDEAL quantity. Maybe some experienced duck owner can clarify this. :idunno
Now we will move over to the fodder feeding program. Look at it as the natures way of feeding wild ducks. They do not produce eggs, except when they want of-springs. They do not grow as large, and self basting like raised ducks. So, if you choose fodder raised ducks, don't expect the great benefits feed raised ducks bring.
WISHING YOU BEST,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and:welcome
