I recently got some ducks after not having any for 2 years .. previously the ducks i had were happy to eat poultry mash but these ducks dont seem to like it !

So should i be feeding them a chicken mix or a water bird mix ?

Ducks can find dry mash quite hard to eat. They're not made to eat dry powdery food. It's much better to feed them pellets. And make sure they have fresh water available at all times to wash it down with.

For ducks I use Laucke Showbird Breeder micropellets which are small and easy to swallow. The chicken out get that too.
