My hen hatched out, 13 babies and has been a great mom to them, I sold 8 the other day. I bought some baby ducks from a feed store, and bought 40 pounds of Gamebird starter for them along with 40 pounds of chick starter. Well the ducks died, they all are something wrong with their legs(they were pekins) I know you can't feed chick starter to ducks,but I was wondering if I could mix the 2 feeds for my chicks, other wise the game bird starter will go to waste. Also, how long before the hen will lay eggs again? She is my first broody hen, but unless I find a rooster for her, she will just be laying eating eggs.
