I'm hatching a mystery egg that was abandoned and that magically turned out to be fertilized. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/750468/new-australian-hatching-mystery-egg-at-home/) I very much think it is a Native Australian Wood Duck egg, which means it is due to hatch in a few days, as we entered lock down today. Wood ducks seem to like to eat a lot of natural greenery as they are "dabbling ducks"- grasses, herbs, this sort of thing, but I am thinking if it hatches successfully, I should get it some sort of starter as well to eat, especially as a young duckling. However I checked our local produce store, and they only have medicated chick starter, which I read was a big no no for waterfowl. The man in the store insisted that it would be perfectly fine, but I don't know if he was just trying to sell me the product. I want to do the best that I can for this little baby if it hatches, but I don't know if I should risk the medicated starter, or just feed it a vegetarian diet of grasses, green vegetables and herbs and fruit. But then I am worried if that will be enough protien for it... aahh! I don't know what to do!
