    I think you know when there is still duck food on the ground, if there's not, keep increasing the amount until there is about 4 oz. of food still on the ground when you feed them next morning. good luck [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Right now my ducks dont eat the food. They free range. They really dont want the food. I cant figure out why? Lol.

    Mine go through about 2 cups of Mazuri Waterfowl Maintenance each per day (sometimes they don't even finish). That's probably about 1/2 lb.
