    I've always wondered if this feed could be fed to Duck Hens.

    It says layer hens, but it doesn't specify if it is okay for Duck layer Hens.

    I contacted Nutrena and they NEVER got back to me. I don't think their cs is that good, but you knows?



    As anyone else fed this to thier Duck Girls?

    Hi Duckiegirl,
    Country Feeds Layer is probably not the best option for your laying ducks. Country Feeds All Flock 18% would be a better choice - this feed is designed for multiple species like ducks and therefore has a more appropriate vitamin/mineral profile. By adding free choice oyster shell to fill the calcium requirement you will have a great ration for those laying ducks!
    If you have any further questions please feel free to PM me and I will get you a quick response.
    Thanks,
    Tiffany from Nutrena

    We use to feed Nutrena all flock to our ducks, and they laid wonderfully. Unfortunately we had to switch feeds when the supplier refused to come to our feed store with less than an entire truck full. I loved the small pellet size of the all flock, wish we could get it again.

    I do not feed that brand, but I do feed an 18% or 20% layer ration to them. They do enjoy the scratch treat along with the chickens as well.
