I have 2 turkeys and 2 ducks do I use feed with meds in it or no any types of foods?
Welcome to BYC!
Turkeys and waterfowl can have feed medicated with amprolium and/or bacitracin. What ages are your turkeys and ducks?
A lot depends on the ages. Newly hatched turkey poults should have a high protein feed. I feed mine a 28% turkey gamebird starter with no medications. It can be difficult to find a good quality high protein feed that has medications in it.
From my research, ducklings should have a 21% protein starter. Most waterfowl feed does not have medications in it and many recommend against medications for waterfowl.
Ducklings and turkey poults should not be brooded together because of their different food requirements and because the turkey poults do not do well in a wet environment that the ducklings can produce.
