    I am unfamiliar with ducks as it were. I'm so used to my girls and i dont want to do the wrong thing. so...what do u feed a duck? I've tried researching the subject but i know that you would be the ones to ask. From what i know it's an 8 week mallard. It wasn't taken care of properly and seems underweight and had that angel wing thing going on when i got it. I would love your feedback.

    At 8 weeks of age they should be fed duck developer or if that is not available gamebird flight conditoiner mixed with duck grower.If it has angelwing be sure to keep it away from predators.Next time that happens as soon as you notice it duct tape the wings right away.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
