My ducks will be two in March, so this is the second winter I have had them. I recently changed from Flockraiser pellets to Del's All Purpose Poultry food in crumbles form of feed. Am supplementing with oats, and some dry cat food since a few of the ladies are molting. Have been giving them double the amount I fed them last year at this time, and they seem starved (follow me until fed - something they have never done). They appear to be healthy....no noticeable weight loss. And I know we are newly into winter (first hard freeze last night), but double the feed just because i changed from pellets to crumbles? Hens are more so than drakes. Feathers look good as they are coming back in. More interested in me and the feed bowl then foraging which is odd for them. They are not getting as much forage time, which I know is an issue, but stilll they seem awfully hungry for getting fed twice a day at double what they got last year???? And the drakes do not exhibit this behavior. They stand back and let the hens feed. One is couple weeks into first molt, second just starting, and third duck has not started molt yet.
