    Chicks are 5 weeks and Ducks are 3 weeks. They've been on un-medicated chick crumbles.

    I kept mine on chick food until they were 16weeks old then switched to layer food. I use mine for eggs.

    Im sure you could switch at any time if it is layer crumbles. But don't never give your ducks medicated chicken feed. It messes up their systems.

    My chicks are 6&8 weeks and my local feed store has me mixing in grower feed with the chick feed.
