    I have recently just gotten a few pekins. After i brought them home i noticed that they were a little on the thin side. I have looked it up and it says grower is good but it contains alot of protein. Will this not cause them to grow? Pekins are known for being small.

    How old are they?

    I feed grower to all of my ducks, usually mixed with some cracked corn. I have a Crested Pekin and he is right around the same size as the Saxonys and Cauygas.
