    Evening everyone,
    So these are my first ducks so I’m completely new to this... I have an 8ish week old drake and 3week ish old ducklings, I have the drake on Allen and page growers and the ducklings on starter, transitioning onto the grower over the next few days. My question is, what do I feed them after the growers food and when do I move them over? Can drakes eat layers pellets or are they too high in calcium?
    Thank you in advance

    I'd go with an All Flock feed Purina has one called Flock Raiser might be one in other brands too. Then just put out oyster shell for the layers. Drakes won't eat it.

    We'd love to see your ducklings when you have a chance to post. :pop

    Allen and Page makes Smallholders feeds correct?
    Here they are side by side so you can compare them with others. The "G/D Breeder" is the layer pellets.
