    I feed Purina Flock Raiser to all my ducks, goose and chickens. when they start to molt should I add something else to their diet or change their feed to something else during this time of stress. I also give mealworms and peas as treats. Seems I read something about game bird feed but can't remember if it was for molting or just for feeding anytime. Thanks for your answers. [​IMG]

    I've heard that dry cat-food has a lot of good proteins for feather developement.

    I sometimes mix a little corn and dry cat kibble into their feed when molting.
    I only mix the corn and dry cat kibble into their feed only once a week so they still have to eat the Feed for them but they still get a little treat. [​IMG]
