What should I feed pekin duck chicks? And for how long? And then what should I feed after that?
Starter crumbles, around 18% protein if I recall, and switch over to grower pellets between 2 and 4 weeks. For layers, you want to start giving them calcium about a month before they start to lay. The trick is, when they start getting romantic, that's about a month before laying, based on how my flock was.
There is a Sticky with all this info - and you can check the protein percentage - in https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/750869/raising-and-caring-for-ducklings#post_10611711
