    I have a Question,
    I have two pet ducks ,I feed them flock feed ,,But I give them boiled brown rice along with scraps,,
    Is there a special food to keep them satisfied for the coming first winter ,,
    We live in N.Idaho and it gets below 0. For a few weeks at a time ,,,

      An all-purpose fowl/chicken flock feed should have everything they need, except Calcium if they are egg-layers (offer additional free-choice Calcium/oyster shell). By feeding them additional rice, you are cutting the protein content of the feed- which is probably fine for warm months if they free-range, but isn’t a good idea for winter when there are no bugs/worms to dig up and add extra protein.

      Just make sure they have access to as much feed as they want and good clean water and they should do just great! -Crystal
