Ok so Ive lost 2 chicks now to ants getting into their shells as soon as they make a hole, they swarm the whole nest. Ive brought them inside but I have no real equipment to control the environment. Is there a poison that I can use that ssafe for the chickens and chicks to be around in the next? something natural maybe?? We moved the other nest to another box but Im sure they will follow. So I have one set of eggs inside (1 has hatched but I dont have high hopes for the others) and one set is still in the coop.
