How much do Duck need of pellets?

I have Alysbury ducks around 17 weeks old. I'm feeding them pellets and they seems to demolish the hopper of feed each day. What do they average eat gram wise? I expect mice rats etc if you tell me they eat feckall a day!

They seem to be young and still growing so will have a good appetite. Also, it is quite cold at the moment, therefore they will need more food to generate heat.
I have 2 adult call ducks and at times they eat very little as they find food like worms and slugs in the garden, other times they are hungry, especially when it is cold as I said

No worries. Maybe someone has a more accurate answer. It is also nice when someone replies to a reply. Thanks
