Hey everyone, Im new to ducks but have learned alot from here and other things iv researched so I thought id ask a question or two.
I have three different aged ducklings two muscovys (I think they are male and female but could be wrong) and a white Campbell. Due to them being different ages I find it hard to work out what to give them the little one is almost 3 weeks the middle one is 7 and the Campbell older (not sure of an age as the woman said 3 weeks but she so lied about that as her white feathers are really coming thro)

Can I move them all on to grower pellets at the same time? Cause if I try and split there food the bigger two will still eat the little ones and if I split them up to feed them the Campbell freakes out if any the other two are taken away from her.

I would really appreciate any advice given not even just on this on anything that you think would help.

Thank you

why not go to an "All Flock" like Purina Flock Raiser then you can feed it to everyone.

I use the Purina Flock Raiser crumbles. I have ducklings, chickens and goslings. I have used it since the week I brought them home. They are growing like weeds on it and seem to be very healthy. Smells lots nicer than the Dumor brand. Kind of like molasses. I also supplement them with wheat berries and mealworms.

Do you have Armada Feed in your area? I use it and like it very well. No complaints about Dumor either. Personally I think the Purina is a bit costly compared to others, and I didn't think my flock preferred it or anything.
