    Hello again everyone, thank you all for your kindness and advice but I am in need of some advice again. My ducklings are about 2 weeks old now and I've heard multiple things about changing to grower feed at 3 weeks but then on the labels for the foods its says to feed them the food until theyre 10 weeks. Just a little confused on what to do and I want to make sure that my precious little peas are well taken care of. Also, if anyone could give some recommendations for food that would be wonderful!

    Depends on what you are feeding, I think.

    Starter crumble is recommended by Storey's Guide for the first 2 or 3 weeks. Then slowly (by combining them) switch over to grower/maintenance.

    However, there are some different formulations. Can you tell us what you are feeding now?

    I would start adding in a good grower/maintenance feed soon. Do you know what is available for you? I am not an expert on all the available feeds. But perhaps others can check in.

    I have used Blue Seal organic, and Purina (way back, if I recall), and now use Countryside Organic with the occasional Mazuri Breeder.
