    Hi! I have 2 pekin Ducks, 1 is a drake, and I'm currently feeding them uhh some kind of poultry food lol. But I just got baby chicks that will eventually be my laying hens and they will be in the same run. What will I need to be feeding them when they're all together? Can the ducks eat laying crumble for hens?

    At TSC, it'll be called "Flock Raiser". You'll have to set out a calcium source on the side for your laying birds. It doesn't need to be complicated, a little container with oyster shells and/or crushed egg shells will do.
