Hi all! I am planning to add some ducks to my flock this month, I have a couple questions... 1/ is the heat lamp necessary during the day? I'm in FL and it's over 90 everyday
2/ I have a huge bag of medicated chick starter, I read medicated is a big no no correct??
Any advice would be so helpful! i have only the little experience from my chickens that are only 4 months and I know there are some major differences in starting them out vs ducks, it seems to be easier to find chicken info out there vs ducklings... Thanks in advance!!

No medicated chick starter. Buy duckling crumbles (available online if you don't have a nearby feed store). I buy mine from McGeary Organics.
Or use unmedicated chick starter and add brewers yeast.
