What Do you feed your ducks?

    If you have quite a bit of grower left start mixing it into the feed for them all and just put out Oyster shell for your layers. since your ducks are 19weeks old your female needs an extra boost of Oyster shell since she is getting close to laying. . Put it close to where their feed is and the layers will eat it as needed. It won't hurt the rest of your birds to eat the grower mixed in.

    It can be very confusing but just try to keep it simple I have chicks now and I am sure I will have starter left over when they go to All flock so I will mix it into the rest of the feed, I have done this for the12 years I have had poultry and haven't lost any from feeding. Just make sure your layers and beginners get extra calcium with Oyster shell It's inexpensive and they just know to use it when they need it.

    And @LoveforAnimals Welcome to BYC
