    My Ducks share a coup with some chickens who's owner just bought PAYBACK EGG LAYER RATION. Will this hurt my ducks? I have read some threads saying that medicated chicken food is bad for ducks, I don't know if this is a medicated food or not. Ingredients are listed below. Thanks.

    During breeding season I feed my ducks a 75-25% layer crumble to corn and they do very well on it. As long as the food IS NOT medicated, they do well on most food.
