  1. I have a baby duckling and I also have lots of chicken starter mix and I was wondering if that will be okay?

    As long as it isn't medicated you are good to go. You will need to add niacin though either by Brewers yeasts or add a table to their water.
     
  3. Is it okay for for my my older ducks?

    The protein content it pretty high for adults. What about an all flock?

    I believe it's Purina, but it's an all flock food. It does have a high protein content as well though and I only use it for my ducklings. Once they get older I use grower till egg laying age for my females. My males staid on the grower pellets.
