Purina Layena - can I use this on ducks?

    I'm getting for female ducks this next spring and I was wondering if I could feed them this food and if I would have to supplement niacin or not. Also, when should I start feeding my ducks this food?

    Thanks in advance and I do apologize for this being about ducks in a chicken section. I just thought it worked because it's chicken feed. [​IMG]

    If you can't find a water fowl type feed or a game bird feed, Layena for chickens would be ok.

    The water fowl and some game bird diets have the add niacin that ducks need.
