My ducklings seem to be doing well but what's the average for feed that they are suppose to eat. Between the 3 they eat about 1-1 1/4cup a day they are 2 weeks old. They are gaining weight but they they don't seem to eat too much, I thought they'd eat more. Water of course they go crazy for.

Young birds will not eat a whole lot in the first couple weeks. But they should have access to it at all times so they can come and go when needed. Your right....ducks and geese will drink a LOT of water. They need enough to keep hydrated and also to clean their nostrils and eyes. Always keep plenty of fresh water for them.
