How much is enough?

What breed of duck? Calls and Runners need much less than Pekins and Aylesburies (I'm pointing out the obvious,
but if you've already decided on the breed, you can get a better answer with that piece of information)

There's a table in Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks that shows feed requirements . . . let me grab that . . . .

Phooey! Can't find it!

Found it!


It's a detailed table, but the range of feed is 0.15 - 0.25 pounds of 12-14% protein feed per duck per day for 2-3 pound ducks . . . .

up to 0.40 - 0.60 pounds of 16% protein feed per duck per day for 8 - 9 pound ducks including Muscovies.
