    I am new to ducks but I have 6 that are due to hatch this weekend. What do yall feed new ducks?

    My feed is Honor Duck/Goose /Chick str/grow 20%
    Like everyone says. if u use just chick str. make sure u add niacin for ducks.
    My feed has it in it... Niacin (brewers yeast) u can get online or places like
    WalMart ( vitamin section) and either sprinkle on food or put in their water.
    How exciting post pics when u can...[​IMG]
