and lots of questions!

I'm doing all my homework before getting 2 - 3 ducks. I'm having a hard time finding a monthly cost to feed and bed the ducks. Can someone help me out please?

Thank you!!

I usually go through a bag of flock raiser every month. (18 dollars but I have a lot of birds). I usually use 2 - 3 bales of hay for bedding every 2 months which is about 24 - 36 dollars,
and lots of questions!

Kevin565, Thank you so much for your reply!

I'm getting (Pekin) ducklings. What is the best to start on? I can get Mazuri starter from work, but it's $30+ for a bag. How long do they need to eat the starter? I'd like to feed my ducks well, on a small budget.

Thank you!

Do you have a Tractor Supply near you? They sell the flock raiser, and the feed I use, which is Dumor chick/duck starter, its I think $15 for a 50 lb bag. If you look at the back of the bag it should have "guidelines" I think they get start up until 8 weeks old
