    So we have young birds and older birds, chicks and even ducks. How do we do this and make sure everyone is getting the nutrients they need?

    Feed everyone a balanced ration like a flock raising mixture and supplement that with a little kibbles and bits dog food, some oyster shell on the side, and some whole shelled corn (not cracked corn) as a daily treat. Your ducks should be very adapt at dabbling in their pond for the shelled corn.
