Hi: I spent all weekend cleaning out and winterizing my duck house... it looked great, all clean and warm and fluffy new bedding and hay...It was pouring rain when I got home last night, so I just did a quick check on the ducks. Tonight when I got home from work I found this... Something has placed a bunch of black walnuts in the ducks house... I'm wondering if anyone has had this experience in the past, I'm guessing either chipmunk, rat or squirrel???

Definitely don't use rat poison if you have dogs.
What did you bait the traps with? Peanut butter usually works. It may also be worth trying a more unusual type of trap in case they're used to one kind. Heck, even a cage trap, if you have a humane way to dispatch them once caught. Drowning is NOT humane.
