    I am getting two new duckling for the first time next week. I have enough food for the first few weeks but I cant find any food for their adolescent stage (I've read that is around 4 weeks) and I don't know if it would be okay to keep feeding the starter feed until they can handle their adult food? If not then can I have a few links to some good food for this stage of their life? Thanks! [​IMG]

    What I found was a grower-maintenance food. I slowly adding increasing amounts of the grower to the crumble between 2 and 3 weeks. That worked out fine for us.

    We feed Purina Flock Raiser for the entire lifespan of our ducks.
