    I am REALLY excited because I bought a blue muscovy hen from the lane county fair and I get to pick her up on Sunday!!! I am planning on keeping her in with my laying hens. Is it alright for her to eat the laying crumble that I feed to my laying hens? It has 16% crude protein. I looked on line and saw a waterfowl maintenance feed that had no less than 14% crude protein. I also saw a waterfowl breeding feed that had no less than 17% crude protein.
    Thanks, playswithfowl
    p.s. Any additional info, or helpful advice would be greatly appreciated [​IMG]

    Our ducks (including muscovies) eat everything our hens eat. They lay nice large eggs and don't seem to have any problems.
