Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks includes an appendix for making your own feed. I have just researched all the ingredients and have found them all at the local chain grocery store, my local organic food coop, and my local feed supply store. It is alot cheaper! I am not really answering the question here, but wonder if anyone out there has tried making their own??

I fed my ducklings chick starter feed. I read that ducklings would not get enough protein in the chick starter feed and it would be important to supplement their protein. We gave them cooked eggs, meats, worms would be ideal as well as greens.

When feeding your ducklings a chick starter, be sure it is not medicated..as the medication in the feed will make the feed spoil quicker...because ducks moisten their feed to eat...or make sure you put fresh feed out twice a day and clean up any that has been wet. The hard boiled eggs is a good idea for a treat and help with the protein.
