Use a good duck mash it's idea for all types of ducks and don't forget greens and grit if the mash doesn't already have it

Yes and the best way to get them to eat it is to chop it up fine and mix it with the mash I found it would all be eaten that way if you just throw it in only sum will eat it and you want them all to get some greens 2 or 3 times in a week
