    We have nasty bull ants in the coop. The girls are eating them now but, I want to get rid of them. I know they could attack and kill a chicken. Any ideas on how to kill them? We couldn't find a nest. So I have no idea what to do.

    "Bulll Ants" are also called "Carpenter Ants"
    Their nest will be in a dead tree or limb nearby.
    I've killed them using Fire Ant poisons, or a mix of 3 parts sugar and 1 part Boric Acid dissolved in water or Coca Cola

    Put it where your chickens can't get to it
