    Hey everybody,

    Is it ok for my 1 day old duckling to eat medicated Nutrena Naturewise chick starter??

    I think it only has amprolium? correct me if i'm wrong and whether or not they can eat it please.

    If all it has is Ampro it should be fine. Some people would advise you to add some Niacin since chick feed usually does not have as much as duck or other feeds, however we do not add extra Niacin. I give my ducks a lot of greens and allow them forage time, so we've never really needed it.
