Last Saturday I adopted (saved?) two very young Runner ducks from a guy giving them away at a grocery store. I couldn't stand the thought of where they might wind up.... :::: shudder :::: So, I have these two 10 - 14 day ducklings, and nine 5 week old chicks. For now, the ducks are on starter chick feed... the only problem is that it's medicated. I've been running myself around town trying to find non-medicated starter feed in a quantity of less than 50 lbs. Should I bite the bullet and buy a 50# bag immediately, or will these guys be okay for a few days on the medicated? Thanks for your replies... I really want to do what's best for these guys... they're SO dang cute! Oh, and any recommendations for books on ducks (Runners) for newbies?
