    I have 3 female ducks who are about 10 weeks old. They are fully grown. Is it too early to give them layer feed like my chickens are on?

    Thanks!

    I don't start laying feed until they are 5 months old.

    I started by girls on layers pellets at 10 weeks old and they lay me an egg almost every day! [​IMG]

    You must make sure the protein content is between 16 and 18% - if it is lower, they ducks should be offered chopped, hard boiled eggs (even their own once they start laying!) to help boost their protein intake!
