This winter they will return... - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hawks and Eagles are beautiful, and they're good for the environment. I am capable of understanding the fact that they just want to survive by thriving off my ducks. I do not like them more than chickens, and I believe they are a pain at points. Regardless if it is for survival, I dislike them. Sure they're pretty 'n all, but I do not favorite them because of this. I know it's so they can survive; I am 100% understanding of that. I just prefer my chickens over them is all.

Like I said before we won't shoot it. I said it a few times actually. We'd never do that because here; you go to prison for 25+ years for killing one. We'd never risk it if you can easily just purchase more ducks and chickens.

I have an idea for our ducks, and we might be able to pen them up. We won't be able to make a fence over the penned off area they'll be in though. It's unfortunate but there's nothing we can really do about that then I suppose.

I've heard here on this forum a suggestion that I will try if I have to.

A guy planted several 8' sticks of pvc in the ground around the yard and strung fishing line in a zig zag pattern.

Supposedly, the birds can pick up on this and stay clear of the area.
