Due to allergies, I would like to feed my ducks a corn, soy, and wheat free feed. They are primarily layers and we may eat some if we have too many. I’m struggling to find anything like this or recipes and do not want to make my ducks ill. I plan on doing a mix of oats, flax and sunflower seeds, ground up egg shell, brewers yeast, peas, our kitchen scraps, meal worms, and they have a fair amount of access to bugs in their area. I am not sure how exactly to mix this or if it is adequate. Any feedback is appreciated!

Welcome!
Contact a poultry nutritionist; try your county poultry extension office, your state veterinary school, Purina or other big feed companies, for information and advice.
Balancing a homemade diet is tricky, and doing it right will be expensive.
Are you allergic to all those grains? That will make it difficult, for sure.
