I am an ex***** *****ving in Thailand and have saved a black duck from slaughter. What should i feed it?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

With regards ***** ***** question, it would be ideal to feed a standard pelleted waterfowl diet (ie ¾ cup Mazuri), along with a few pieces of dark floating greens in water, few mealworms and earthworms. If you struggle to get a proper duck feed, you can use laying hen pelleted feeds but do make sure to keep him on a duck specific vitamin supplement to ensure he gets adequate B vitamins.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
