Our eleven Pekin Ducks just turned eleven weeks old! We have read all on the real food treats but we were wondering what brands of commercial feed people like once they reach 18 weeks or older. One has a drake feather already so we don't know the ratio on male / female but it seams like feed specializes in egg production but we want them all to have the same feed since we are busy people. We currently just started using Dumor 15% Grower/Finisher. That is the only brand we have used and we buy 50lb bags. We have Tracker Supply Co and a local feed store that has no organization to even recognize what feed would be for ducks. We bought them to clear our shared irrigation pond of duckweed but due to Hurricane Michael it will be awhile before we let them in there. We also need to rid it of the Snapping Turtles. We assume box turtles are fine? We do plan to eat the eggs and raise them as part of our family (indoor cat as well). I tried to post a video showing a peek of the duck house being built but even with the lowest settings on my phone it says the videos (I tried retaking several shorter ones) are too big. We are thinking of sand outside in the run since our soil is mostly sand anyways and straw inside the house.
