Hello, With this feed should I still use garlic brewers yeast? Also, this isn't a choking hazard for 2 day old ducklings?
Answer by ChewyJan 01, 2021
Feed ad libitum as the sole ration to newly hatched and adolescent birds during their period of fastest growth. If supplementation is desired, it should make up no more than 20% of the total dietary intake (as is basis).

Is this feed considered “non medicated”
Answer by ChewyJul 12, 2021
None of the Mazuri waterfowl diets are medicated.

Is this acceptable for cygnets?
Answer by ChewyMay 17, 2022
This food is formulated for newly hatched ducklings, goslings, and other waterfowl species, as well as adolescent birds. It is suitable for cygnets.

The ducks and geese live it. None of it goes to waste. It floats for hours. And best of all my birds are growing better and looking healthier.

Won’t use anything else!

This starter food is hands down the best! Perfect size for the ducklings to eat. It floats so it can be used for enrichment also. Complete nutrition. Healthy ducklings. We ended up switching over our entire flock to eat solely Mazuri Diet because they were wasting so much of another brand of duck food. It’s worth the price and we end up saving money in the long run!

Cheaper then health problems

Yes, this food is very expensive compared to regular chick starter, or regular duck food from the farm store. You know what is more expensive then this food though? Sick and dying ducks. I’ve used chick starter and tried to supplement with brewers yeast and peas and still had weird symptoms of niacin deficiency. I’d spend extra time and money trying to nurse these ducklings back to health. Once I got my duckling back on track, I switched to this food and have had no problems. Ducklings need special food, don’t buy ducks if you don’t want to feed them what they need to thrive. This food has been a life changer, I wish it was cheaper, but it’s cheaper then health problems with my ducklings!

Not suitable for goslings

This was marketed for goslings and ducklings but it's definitely not for them. The pieces are bigger than their mouths. Useless to me.

Simply the best

Years of experience have convinced me that Mazuri animal feed is the best way to provide nutritious, healthy food for wild and domesticated animals. I won't use any other product for my wildlife.

Tiny Like Bird Seed . . . .

Usually I buy Mazuri Waterfowl Maintenance for ducks and geese that are not captive. They come and go as they please. That feed is about the size of a small-sized dry cat food. Hence, I was surprised to see this starter feed was so much smaller. It's only a little bigger than milo. It floats, though, and is a good feed to pair with bird seed that floats, such as millet and oil sunflower. Yes, it has more protein than adult waterfowl need, but that's not an issue with non-captive birds. This is only part of their diet on any given day, if they show up at all. The reason I got it, instead of maintenance feed, is because it comes in 25-pound bags, and is easier to lift than the 50-pound bags the maintenance comes in. In fact, I can't even lift 50 pounds any longer, but must divide up such a large bag to move the feed.

The best duck food

For those complaining about it being an unlabeled bag and not specific duck food, many large feed bags (like those for livestock and poultry) are nondescript with tags like these that describe what the product is. That's the case with lots of Mazuri products. This is one of the best duck foods out there, I use it for my own ducks as well as the ducks at the wildlife rehab center where I work.

this is a bummer.

I’m super new to the duck raising thing & I really thought this was our best option (it still may be) however, the back of the back doesn’t match the description at all! It actually doesn’t even mention ducks/ducklings. I guess I’m just upset because the description is misleading .. especially to newbies.
