Hey again guys. It's me, back with some new news of Sunny. But this time, it's not good news. She's always eaten like a pig, but I wondered why she never looked "chunky" like all the pekins at the lake. She doesn't really have an interest for veggies anymore, she used to though. So I gave up buying salad bags for her. Which I feel is a mistake on my part. I've been feeding her Chicken layer crumbles and scratch since she turned 3 months old. She's now 7 months, but still not chunky. I decided to research around a little on google. Turns out farm ducks usually reach an average of 7 pounds in their first few months of life when fed well. This shocked me, because after looking at Sunny, she wasn't so large at all. Maybe just as a big as a very large mallard. She never felt heavy either. I started to get a little worried, so I pulled out my digital weight scale. Placed her on it, and waited. 4.2...... Uh oh, not good. I now feel sorry for her, I havn't given her the best diet at all. After taking her weight, which was a few days ago. I've been feeding 2 parts scratch and 1 part layer. Hoping that the corn will fatten her up. But now I'm worried she'll go on a hunger strike after making a switch back to mainly layer. As she's picking out the corn instead of eating the layer as well. Now I'm only 13, so it's pretty much impossible for me to order duck food online. And the closest feed store, only carries layer crumbles and scratch. Which they say is all a duck needs. I can pretty much only buy supplements from here on, but I have another question. How would you introduce new foods to a "human" duck who only cares about chicken scratch? I'm not trying to Hijack my own thread, but some of you may know that I was going to get another duckling for Christmas. Well, it never happened, the only feed store my dad will take me to has stopped carrying ducks. And all the money I got for Christmas, is now in the bank. So once again guys, I ask for your help!
