Need ducks and goose advice - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Thread Starter 

All 5 of my ducks are females, so I'm lucky there. And if we have a bullsnake big enough to eat a goose egg, well.....I think I'll have to catch him and donate him to a zoo or museum!!

14 cats (2 indoor, 13 outdoor)
3 dogs (2 Great Pyrs, 1 German Shepherd)
5 ducks (3 Mallards, 2 Pekins)
4 geese (1 African, 3 Embdens)
3 lambs
2 bucket calves
1 jack

I rarely see snakes here, main thing is to keep pastures cut. We had a big fella a few years ago about 8 ft long i turned out. They keep the mice under control.

I LOVE living on a farm! Snakes and spiders don't bother me, which is good, because we have plenty of both! I would rather have the bullsnakes around to keep the mice under control than use poison.

Boy that's for sure. I like our snakes just don't want them eating our ducklings and chicks. I can spare a few eggs.
