    FEEDING DIRECTIONS
    1. Feed KING Waterfowl as the sole ration to growing waterfowl on a free-choice basis.
    2. Restrict daily feed to 5% of bodyweight for adult non-layers to prevent obesity.
    3. For egg-laying waterfowl, feed KING Waterfowl Layer or Pro-Am Layer on a free-choice basis.
    4. Store feed in a cool, dry area. Never feed moldy or insect-infested feeds.

    It'll be the day when I see an obese duck [​IMG] and yes that feed sounds okay.​

    A little high on protein, but sounds like an overall good feed. I have heard of people cutting feed with oats to reduce protein, but have never done it. I usually feed 16% or less for adults.

    I've had my ducks on Purina Flock Raiser since the arrived. They are now 7 weeks old and no problems as of yet. To tell the truth they are twice if not 3 times the size of my Barred Rocks who are now 8 weeks old.

    That feed LOOKS FINE! Wish I could get it. It looks VERY similar to Mazuri. DO NOT try to alter it. I also CANNOT say HOW HAPPY I AM TO SEE THEY GIVE THE ME!!

    That's the BEST way to evaluate a feed.

    All our feed comes from this mill. It is a local mill that has great service and feed. We have used them exclusively for 20 years.

    What do you recommend when there isn't a mill available? I'm raising call ducks and chickens

    I agree that is where my concern lays, i had my ducks on a 18%... i noticed my one young drake growing to fast, so i dropped it, they are now all on a 15%, i'm basing this info on Storey's guide to duck recommendations for breeding, exhibition and pets, their are less leg problems, wing problems with a 15-16% protein after 3-4wks of age.
