    I'm not a huge fan of Dumor, but MANY people use it.
    I buy gamebird feed that is milled here in Texas and mix it with crimped oats, cracked corn, wheat, sunflower seeds and scratch.

    We have game bird, oats, BOSS, scratch and Mazuri waterfowl mixed for the call ducks, mandarins, and Sebastopols.
    The LF ducks and African geese get all flock mixed with some BOSS, and scratch.

    Recently switched our mix of feed and enjoying the Mazuri feed, lack of wasted feed and how they look. Have also seeded winter rye that is growing nicely and they are eatting free range.

    I feed my silkies gamebird feed. I can tell a great difference from the ones fed standard feed that i gave away as culls. Gamebird feed should help your ducks too.

    I feed them Purina Flock Raiser (Pellets.) I also give them Corn, but they won't eat it for some reason?? [​IMG] The guineas and chickens are hooked on that stuff, though!
