    Hi everyone,
    I am looking into some options of buying bulk feed items to mix our own feed for chickens instead of buying the pre-made stuff. My question is if the same can be done for ducks? One of the recipes I have seen uses milo, hard red wheat, oats, millet and BOSS. Are these also safe to feed the ducks? Anything else I need to put in the food to supplement like certain vitamins, etc? I am still looking for more information on making feed, so any info on homemade feed that I can use for BOTH ducks and chickens would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    The list you have sounds like a good start.

    There are vitamin packets designed to be mixed into feed. One is called poultry nutria-balancer.
