Hi. This is my first post here, so please be nice to me . We are getting 4 runner ducklings on Tuesday/Wednesday and we went to the feed store to get all the stuff we need today. I think we got everything we need and the people there are always very helpful... The only thing I was a little confused by is food, and on the advice of the guy working there, we ended up with a fifty pound bag of Blue Seal game bird starter/grower crumbles. It seems like a fine food, but now that I think about it, fifty pounds seems excessive for four ducklings ... So my question is how long do they stay on the starter food and how much will four ducklings eat? They seem pretty small to need fifty pounds of food... Should I keep this big bag or try to exchange it for a smaller one? Oh, and if these four work out, we may try to get some more runners in the next few months . If this is too much food for these four, would the food keep long enough to feed them too? Any advice would be appreciated!
