    I got the duck starter with niacin, but I'm gonna pick up some tablets of niacin. And he had been getting peas (i read they were high in niacin)
    I stopped feeding the chicks the chick starter because it's medicated and have just been feeding them the duck starter since they are all together now.

    Ok, thank you. I was so excited that my TSC actually had the duck starter. I was planning to get a bigger bag of chick starter, then I seen the 5lb bags of duck starter and I almost peed my pants, lol.

    Oh and I've been crushing them or making mash. They really like the mash.

    Littles do well on mash.

    Yea, my husband usually rolls his eyes at me and walks away, because I get excited over silly things. When we were at TSC getting supplies he kept checking out the chicks and ducklings and I was like "nope our babies are coming, now get your a** over here and help me look at meds" lmao.

    Lol, last year I was foaming at the mouth when I went in there, but we had just moved to our "homestead" in April 2016 and I knew we just weren't ready for the responsibility yet. I have watched to many animal hoarder shows were the people think they are helping the animals and they are really hurting them and I don't want to be one of those people.
    I would eventually like to start a rescue, but my common sense says I have to be completely prepared for that first.

    You have a good head on your shoulders. Bird math can really get hold us just ask most on here.
    Keep up to date on Rocky and his friends I enjoy hearing all about them and seeing those pics.
    Won't be long till your new babies will be here.
