    I've got 12 runner ducklings arriving in almost three weeks and I'm curious as to where you all buy your duck feed. I'd like an online source so I can get specifically what's best and not just what's available at Orschelns. About how many pounds of starter feed would it take in total to bring up this amount of ducklings?

    ducklings eat about a pound each per week, i feed mine a 24% protein feed with niacin added for the first 2 weeks then they go on an 18% feed with niacin added till they reach laying age then they can go on a standard 16% chicken feed.
