    I raise all my call ducklings on medicated food. Amprolium will not hurt them.

    Does medicated food contain anything other than amprolium?!

    The medicated ones used to years ago, but I've never seen any that have anything but amprol/amprolium in them.

    Here is a link I was reading yesterday on coccidiosis saying it is okay:

    For those waterfowl breeders out there, I have good news. Previously thought to be harmful to ducks, the latest veterinary science claims that neither Amprolium nor Bacitracin are toxic to ducks. As part of a study, I have had my waterfowl on medicated feed for over a year now, and everyone is thriving.
