    Hello,
    I’m having a hard time figuring out how much nutritional yeast to feed my Ancona ducklings each day. I’m currently feeding Scratch and Peck Organic Starter. Can anyone help me with this? I would greatly appreciate it.

    Can you post a pic of the nutritional label or say what brand and size you got?

    I figured out how to post a picture yet but the brand is Scratch and Peck Feeds Organic Starter.

    Oh! I found it in bulk at my local Winco. Let me see if I can google some info on it.

    It would be helpful to see what the amount of niacin is in the nutritional yeast

    Unfortunately, finding any nutritional information for the bulk bins in Winco seems to be challenging. :(

    Ok well assuming its like other kind you can give the normal 1 tblsp of Nutritional yeast to 1 cup of feed.
    What kind of ducklings do you have?

    Sorry I see you already said Ancona.
    If for some reason they start to get leg problems you can up the nutritional yeast to 3 tblsp per cup or get a B complex to give them.
