Hi everyone, quick question for you. I have 2 baby ducks, about 3-4 weeks old. I just ran out of their feed, and cannot get to town tI'll Monday. I'm wondering if layer crumbles will keep them going till Monday? I have medicated chuck starter, but ducks can't have medicated! So what can I feed them till Monday?

Sorry I didn't see this in time. I hope you figured it out.

In the future
For 2 days, amprolium for ducks and excess calcium won't be a problem.
If you combine the 2 feeds, there will only be about 2.5% calcium and half the amprolium which Metzer farms says isn't a problem for ducks.
