    how much brewers yeast should I add per cup of food? My ducklings are 5-days-old.

    Was hoping for something more accurate than "a sprinkle." I see where everyone says that even though they don't know if the food dish holds 1 cup or 5.

    The way I understand it, Brewer's yeast is the left overs after brewing beer. It contains lots of good stuff including the Niacin we want for the ducklings and amino acids (raw material for protein). I say all this because I don't think you can give them too much. I used to put about a tablespoon full on a bowl of food for three (probably 1-2 cups of food).
