    Hey yall, I have been feeding my almost two week old mallard ducks Flock Raiser.I use the blender to chop it up for them, only get the pellet form in this area.
    So what age will they be able to safely eat pellets?
    Thanks so much,Miriam

    Bumping this up for you hope some one else can find it for you. I have raised alot but normally wait till they are at least totally feathered out to switch to grower pellets. I been getting Nutrena brand, then had to switch to Purina when feed store ran out. With my Pekins and Scovies they were a good 5 lbs, and totally feathered out before I switched.
