    I live in Long Island and we have VERY limited choices at the few feed stores that are available. I am getting a pair of adult snowy call ducks next week and want to get their feed now. The seller suggests Nutrena feeds (which I cannot find here) or Kent Feeds...another unavailable brand here on the Island. I did order some kelp supplement, but that sure isn't going to help with their main ration. I was curious if those of you with call experience might give me the benefit of your experience with feed?

    I feed mine a mixture of Purina Flock Raiser and Layena pellets.

    I use Agway brand pellets. I also use cracked corn in the winter. Any pellet will do. I use layer pellets in the spring.

    So far I am using Flock Raiser and fresh greens for mine. I have 3 right now - two white ducks and a snowy drake. They are pretty darn cute. [​IMG]
