    I feel like I'm feeding them far too much but they're always hungry! I feed them 3/4 times a day with 3/4 vegetables weetbix noodles and egg and 1/4 chicken feed

    they should have starter feed available 24/7 when young. if they arent foraging at all, you will need to allow free access to starter feed 24/7 for the first 3 months or so.

    DONT give duckling anything but starter feed unless you are also giving grit, they need grit to digest the other foods properly. Noodles are not a food source, although some give them as treats.
