    Hi,

    I'm getting some ducklings and i just wanted to make sure that i feed them the right stuff. I've done some research, and found this "Flock Raiser[​IMG] SunFresh[​IMG] Recipe" at TSC and this is what they say

    Purina Mills[​IMG] Flock Raiser[​IMG] SunFresh[​IMG] Recipe is specially formulated for raising a mixed flock of poultry until laying age (18-20 weeks). It is also designed to meet the more demanding needs of broiler or meat-type chicks, raising them successfully from hatch to either market or maturity. Purina Mills[​IMG] Flock Raiser[​IMG] is a 20% protein product made from the same high-quality ingredients as Start & Grow[​IMG]. It is higher in energy to support the faster growth rate of meat-type birds. Well-supplemented with vitamins and minerals, this product also works very effectively for growing turkeys (eight weeks and older). It is fortified with high levels of niacin so that it can also be used for waterfowl. Purina Mills[​IMG] Flock Raiser[​IMG] SunFresh[​IMG] Recipe provides an entire mixed flock of chickens, ducks, turkeys and geese with top nutrition, all in one bag.

    is this okay to start them with?

    thanks. [​IMG]
