    I have a 2 day old and a 1 day old call duck. What should I feed them they seem to pick at everything other than the chick starter feed. I tried mixing it with water and they still won't touch it.

    I answered in your other post too.....I always feed mine Purina medicated Start & Grow. Dry in a shallow dish. Make sure they access to water while they eat.

    Where do you get the purina from? We cannot find it around where we live at.

    I get it at a couple of the local feed stores. Have you done a search on the purina website for a dealer near you?

    I feed ducklings duck starter by purina.

    Take anything else out of the brooder that they are picking at, then they have nothing but the feed.. [​IMG]

    I know I've read that you should NOT feed ducklings medicated chick feed. I believe I read that it can kill them (or make them seriously ill) because they eat much more voraciously than chickens and get too much of the medication in their systems. Just thought I'd mention it.
