    When can I leave food out all the time for my ducks or feed twice per day? Storey's guide says 2 xs after a few weeks. I feed three per day now. I have ten 7 week old female runners and they do not forage during the day. Not yet.

    My ducks/ducklings have food out during daylight hours. when they go to bed food gets put up till morning, but even though mine forage I still give them food to eat. especially young ducks 7 weeks old they are in their biggest growing stage and need the nutrients.
