Hi there,

Just a question about calcium needs for pullets. We have cross breed sussex (like everyone) that are around 14 weeks and they look like shite at the moment, well always do really. Can I try duck pellets? do they have more calcium than chook feed?

Cheers,

JJ

They are much higher in protein and duck need that to breed well and fatten up
