Welcome to BYC! Do like the others suggested and add water to it, but keep an eye on it because in a warm brooder it will start to go rancid very quickly.

Make sure you are not giving them medicated feed. Its not goid for ducklings.
This is a myth. :oops: Most medicated feed is medicated with amprolium and amprolium is safe for ducklings. Everyone should read this:
Feeding Ducklings Medicated Feed - The Myths and the Truth

However, most chick feeds do not contain enough of the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that ducklings need. @Hannahducks, make sure you're feeding your ducklings a feed that is made for ducklings or there is a chance they could develop health problems.
