As I was working I notice someone ordered in some Purina® Duck Feed Pellets in. So that got me wondering I read the bag and it has the vitamin niacin in it that waterfowl should have as part as their diet. I was feed them layer feed with scratch grain mix but it just wasn't supporting them like this feed does.
The Geese just love it they recognize the bag and come running, the also found it in the brooder barn and help themselves to my dismay. Their feathers are all coming in nicely and they look so much better since I switched so I have to give this feed a 5 Star in my review and highly recommend it. The price does vary were you get it and you might even have to order it threw your local TSC store with the order of 5 minimum bags but if you want health waterfowl sure is a worthy investment.
