    I have been feeding by 4, 2 week old ducks Purina duck grower. I looked on the nutrition list today and saw that it only had a (min.) of 16%. I know that ducks are supposed to have 20%-24&% in there first few weeks alive. Is it to late to give them more protein or are they going to have problems feathering? PLEASE HELP!!!

    I don't think that you will have problems. They might grow slower - but that isn't always a bad thing. Keep feeding them what you have. It won't hurt anything. There are people that feed thier ducks 16% from the start just like you.

    Make sure they have enough greens (grass, peas, romain lettuce, ect.) for them to eat. They will be just fine.
