    What should i feed my duckling? Right now, im feeding her non-medicated chick starter feed but what can i feed her when shes older amd when do i make the switch?
    Also any tips on how to raise a single duck? I have some rime devoted for her every day but how can i raise her as an only duck?

    16% all flock pellet, ducks really do need pellets. Some feed stores can order duck & geese pellets but all flock works fine. If you can only get 18-20% pellets (NOT layer pellets) then I would suggest adding whole corn to bring the protein level down (not more than half corn half pellet). You can feed starter for a couple weeks if you want and start mixnig the feed that you are switching to in gradually. Ducks imprint so a single duck is going to think it's a cat, dog, person, or whatever else it will be living with. Not much you can do about that.
