    I am a new 'duck mother'. I have two Pekin ducks that are now about 4 weeks old.
    They eat like hungry bears! I give them about 2 cups of chick starter three times a day.
    They gobble it up and then rest but are more than ready by the next meal.
    I haven't had luck with the feeders that are round and the food is supposed to funnel
    down to the eating section. I like the looks of the metal one above.
    My main concern is that I'm feeding them enough. They look amazing and healthy
    to me. Of course I'm like a new mother and think they are perfect!
