When do you start limiting the ducks food? Mine are almost 4 weeks old and the pekings are double the size of the welsh harlequin's and the Mallards. But on another thread I was reading about how you know you have a fat duck--- And my Pekings are starting to get that pooch in front, is this normal? I am feeding 31 ducklings an ice cream pail in the morning and one in the evening-- and sometimes when I check them in the day I give them more as well as I was told to keep food in front of them 24/7. How much should they be getting? And when do I cut back so that they only have food during the day?
