    The feed store carries TURKEY food, but I am not sure if it's okay for ducks to eat?? I got a bag of game bird mix (I think that's what it is called) it is 26% protein. Is this okay to feed to turkeys and or ducks and or chicks? I have raised many a chicks (on chick starter) but never ducks and my last turkey experience didn't turn out well. I haven't gotten them yet but they will be here next week and I need to know what to feed everyone, and do I need to separate them due to diet needs? Thank you so much in advance for any replies!!

    I have raised turkeys, pheasants and chickens on game bird starter, but not ducks. I am sure they all will be just fine. Have you looked into feeding all of them flock raiser?

    I feed my ducks Purina Flock Raiser. The bag states that you can feed your entire flock with it.
