Hi all-- I, like many of you it seems, have very limited choices at any local grain store as far as grain for my ducks go. Basically, it comes down to either a "Duck Grower" (but no "finisher", and it says not to be used past 20 weeks or something) or a chicken "Layer pellet." No game bird, or waterfowl, or anything along those lines. My guys were on the duck grower for a while, and eagerly scarfed down their food every day. Then, following the instructions on the bag, I switched them off it, to the chicken layer pellets. Which they don't have much interest in. At all. They're getting the same amount as the duck grower, and it sits in their dish for days, instead of being gobbled up. I'm worried.....I've been buying them lots of veggies and tempting them with my horse grain, just because they aren't eating anything! They don't free range, so it's not like they're stuffing themselves on bugs or anything. Is there something else I can feed them? I mix my own grain for one of my picky horses from cracked corn, barley, oats, etc. Can something similar be done for ducks? I don't know anything about what sort of nutrition ducks need, unlike horses. But if someone has a recipe? BTW, the switch from the duck grower to the chicken layer was very gradual, to get them used to it. And it's been over two months now of straight layer pellet, and no increase in interest.
