Hi there! I'm all new here but have been stalking these forums for months. I'm trying to start doing an urban farm type thing and I'm trying to get some info on Muscovy Ducks but I can't seem to figure out basic care for them feeding wise. I know that optimally chicks should have %20-24 protein and adults should have %16-18... I know that they need extra niacin and unmedicated food. I know that they can eat layer pellets but don't need the extra calcium and that I can just offer free-choice flaked oyster shell instead. (Correct me if I'm wrong on any of that!) But nowhere am I finding how MUCH food total the ducks should eat as adults. Most pet-food packages say "Feed X many cup/lbs/grams per X many lbs of animal". And nowhere am I finding this info for muscovy ducks! If I'm looking at keeping 5 Muscovy ducks (4F 1M) in a 1/8th acre pen how many lbs of feed will I need to feed them every day/week/mo during winter months when the only thing on the ground is snow? And what about in spring/summer when they're laying but there's grass again? I just wanna know how much I am supposed to feed these birds to keep them alive and fairly well... So I can budget out if it's worth it for us to get these birds. We'd be breeding them mostly for meat but a little bit for eggs too. Please let me know!
