I ordered some starter feed but it is going to take about a week to get here. What can i feed my ducklings because i don't have starter feed at the moment?
do you have regular oatmeal if so then put some int a food processor and make it the consistency of starter. be sure to give them fresh drinking water at all times. you could even try wetting the ground oatmeal with some warm water and see if they will eat it. a feed store would carry starter. You'll also need to give some niacin because duckling require more niacin [to prevent nurological problems and leg problems ] than what is in chick starter, just plain niacin in capsule form sprinkled in their water. chopped up romaine lettuce but you'll need to get chick grit if you feed anything besides starter. chopped up boiled egg. Do you have a feed store in your town thats where you get starter from. You also have to be very careful that ducklings can't climb into their drinking container and drown or get chilled.I ordered some starter feed but it is going to take about a week to get here.
