    Got two pekin ducks. About 5 weeks old now. I also have chickens. I bought starter feed and they have both been eating it. However, I cannot find any un-medicated feed around here, and I am so afraid I will feed the ducks too much, or not feed them enough? Any suggestions.

    I would ask if the store you buy your feed at can order some non medicated chick feed. Otherwise I would use flockraiser. You may have to crush it or wet it if they only sell pellet form. Are there any other places you can buy feed? A lot of small/local hardware stores sell feed these days.

    What if the feed medicated with??

    Amprolium is safe so if thats what your feed is medicated with you wont have to worry. Check the pack and see what it says is used.
