hey folks! any idea if poly-tonine a complex vitamin powder is appropriate for ducks? and if so, in what amounts? i'm thinking my ducks could use a vitamin boost. the package says it is for "pullets, laying hens, broilers, and turkeys: as an aid in the prevention of vitamin deficiencies." i am guessing that the manufacturer is thinking of chickens, not ducks, so i bet the dosage would have to be lower than the package advises. thanks!

does anyone know if there is a good rule of thumb for giving water-soluble chicken vitamins to ducks? like, should ducks get half as much in their water as chickens do because ducks drink more?

Oooh, I missed this before.

I give poultry vitamins according to packet directions to my ducks - but not often. Just when they need a boost. And I put it in their night-time water, so they're only getting it for several hours, not all day.

I have not had any problems with that.
