    I've read a bunch of posts, and believe I've got a good handle on the niacin needs for ducklings.

    Do adult ducks not need any niacin suppliment? When do yall tone the niacin back?

    I stopped when I put mine outside and started feeding them growing instead of starter. Most chick starter is just for baby chickens so it doesn't have enough niacin but most grower and layer have enough, just make sure it's for chickens and ducks. It will usually say if it is.

    You can stop adding additional niacin at 10 weeks.
