Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. Just be sure that you are meeting all of their nutritional requirements. Commercial feeds are formulated with that in mind, but homemade feeds are often lacking in key, nutritional requirements. Our experts on our duck section should be able to help you with that. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your ducks.
