    I just acquired 2 young pair of mandarin ducklings.. They are 5 weeks old.. They have been parent raised...

    What can I feed them along with there normal game bird crumble? Is there anything in particular they like??

    I have them in a raised pen right now until they get big enough to not escape the larger enclosure they will go in..

    Thanks for any help.

    Growers pellets after six weeks, lettuce and meal worms. Be careful not to rush them through the growing process as they will end up with problems
