    First sighting of a raccoon on our property

    Tennessee, you don't have to mess with racoons if you buy electric netting. Live and let live. I will kill only if I have too. Some people here think the gun is the only solution. Some people here think the world dumps all the predators at their door. Not so.... Check this site out...

    Duck Troughs: good idea?

    The mink struck again! New plan, will it work?

    Quote: PermaNet Twentynine, your fence sounds like something that would kill my ducks too. Furthermore, a weedcutter charger will damage my type of fencing. Heard a story about a local farmer who hooked up his fence directly to the house outlet. He found an eight point buck the next...

    The mink struck again! New plan, will it work?

    thomas h, we use Premier's PermaNet for Poultry and it won't stop a duckling from going through it. I'm positive it won't stop a weasel or a mink from coming in. We employ rotational grazing, and the only practical defense we have against these predators is a livestock guardian dog. Other...

    Proper feed for laying ducks

    Quote: Yes, they will eat mash. Some people prepare wet mash too. I wouldn't worry too much about the drake's calcium intake. There isn't too much you can do to stop ducklings, hens and drakes from eating the same food. Edited for spelling

    Quote: Then, it sounds as if you should get an A+ in animal husbandry. That's the name of the game. Out of curiosity, what are your intentions with all these ducks? Are they just pets, or are you planning on eating them?

    Well, when I was a kid we used to put heat lamps in the lambing pens. After the ewe lambed, we would almost always find the lamb(s) under the lamp. So, I'm thinking that maybe a heat lamp next to the nest might be of benefit. The stragglers that wander away would stay near the heat. Of...
