Hello fellow duck and geese fanciers

I would love to know what vitamin supplements you are using if any?

I feel mine maybe lacking in good consistent vitamins and minerals

Thanks you all

Sue

I reckon its important to give them as much vitamins and minerals as you can so maybe buying extra vitamins in the bottle form like vitamin a, b, e, and c are all so important like in us human

A good stock feed should have a balanced BUT you should always give supps like a multi vitamin and make sure it covers the majors like vitamin A and E both super important and should always be given in breeding quality fowls

Heres a list of the highest vitamin E in veg you can and should be feeding to your poultry every day!

Spinach
Broccoli
Sunflower Seeds
Pumpkin

Reading up on how important vitamin E is and we have to make sure they get enough

More is good but no overdose just a little every day ;)

The vitamin e is awesome for breeding really boosts the fertility and gusto of the drakes

Thats most important for breeds with poor fertilty with the prime exapmle of mallard rouens. All the best breeders of these table fowls fill them with vitamin supps especially vit E

Yes the average % of fertility in nsw is 10% I was told and that was a lady on the border. Not good for a eating duck breed
