    Can anyone tell me know much veggies exc I should feed my 8 muscovy ducks (2-3 months) during the winter here. they have 2100 sq pen, but I could let them out into the horse pasture if that will help them forge for food. I am new to ducks. I feed them 3lbs of flock raiser everyday half in morning and half at night. I also give them 2 or 3 punches of lettuce a day[​IMG]

    [​IMG] Glad you joined us! You have some pretty ducks! I don't think there is an exact number when it comes to feeding veggies. What you're doing now seems fine. You may need to increase their feed as they get older and start eating more. You can always let the out into the horse pasture during the day to forage for extra greens. Good luck with your ducks
