    Hi, I'm new to BYC. I am getting 10 mallard ducklings on March 29. I have everything needed. Just one question on the right feed. I purchased Kent Home Fresh Multi Flock Chick N Game starter/grower. It says is it's a starter for ducklings but it is a multi species food and want to make sure it's a good choice. Pictures down below show the ingredients and bag. Thanks for all of your help. 1521423488071615826705.jpg 20180318_203935.jpg 20180318_204011.jpg

    The feed will be fine. Multi flock or Alflock means it is good to feed to just that. Chickens, ducks, geese, guineas, all use the same feed. I use Alflock for my chickens. It is 2% calcium. I have layers and non layers. My layers do need more calcium, so I offer cracked oyster shells free choice. My non-layers if were fed layer feed at 4% calcium would be getting too much calcium. That is why I choose the Alflock.
    WISHING YOU BEST and,,,,,,,,, :welcome
