    I would post in the OTHER BACKYARD POULTRY > DUCKS section for the best answers, but I agree...grains would be good. I don't know that this is something that you would cook regularly. Do you have the ability to "free range" them in the yard? They will find plenty of good stuff there!

    Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad you joined. Do you have any feed stores or even graineries nearby? If you cannot get some unmedicated duck starter just know that ducklings do require niacin. :thumbsup
