    Hey! I've got a bit of a problem, you see my duck eggs hatched late, and I stupidly never bought any feed after assuming they weren't gonna make it, now it's a bank holiday so I can't get any feed for two days for my lil newborn duckling. What supermarket alternative can I feed him? Any kind of porridge or even baby food?! I'm really not great with things like this, so all help would be appreciated! Thankyou!

    They don't need food asap, they can live off the yolk they absorb for 2 days

    Exactly don't worry. I usually don't feed them regular food for about 1 1/2-2 days. Because the yolk has a lot of nutrition!!
