    I have two Cayugas that are almost a year old. I have them as pets, and get their feed from our local feed store but they only have one kind of food and it's labeled 'duck feed'

    I want to make sure my girls are on the right food, without steroids or whatever other crap comes in them. What should I be feeding them? Where do I get the food?

    Thanks!

    I have chickens only, but I just got a couple bags of ALL FLOCK .... It states it is for chickens ducks and turkeys. Basically a multi purpose feed. Look at the ingredient label on what you have and compare to ALL FLOCK. Then make your decision if it is good for you.
    I don't think It contains any steroids. Have not heard of the heavyweights at the gym supplementing their oatmeal with it. =D=D=D

    purina game bird chow and flock raiser from purina are good brands to use.

    I use Purina Flock Raiser, everyone seems to like it. I wish it came in pellets, though.

    It does come in pellets but TSC does not carry it. There is another feed store around me that has the pellets :)

    Good to know, I'll look at the other feed stores in the area.
