    We just adopted a young (thought to be around 5-6 months old) female Indian Runner. She joins our IR drake and our Pekin hen.
    My question is whether or not she needs anything special being a younger duck? The eat Blue Seal Grower Cal and Layer pellets, during laying I use an oyster shell supplement for the girls. Not using it now, no one is laying. Plus vegetables twice a day.
    Anything else I should be doing for her?

    Here's a picture of her I took last night when we brought her home. She had a 1.75 hour drive from the shelter, so she was a little stressed.
