What can I add to the feed for the ducklings to reduce the protein.
They eat an unmedicated 18% protein chick starter. They run the deck or are in a brooder in the yard or free range in the yard for an hour or so. The plan was to construct a 12x12 pen for them to hang in during the day in the yard instead of just in their brooder in the yard.

Not certain why you want to reduce the protein....most all-flock feeds are 18%. Many will say cut with oats, but that screws up the ME of the diet and throws the amino acids out of balance.
