    I have been seeing the ads on here for Coop ‘N Compost Odor Neutralizer. How does it work and do you guys suggest it?

    Does it go in the ducks' water, then it makes their poop stink less? (That was my understanding, but I just want to be sure)

    Do not put Coop 'N Compost in your ducks water.

    It is a granule that you put down under the bedding to help absorb odor.

    I am also wondering about this product. I am worried about my ducks ingesting it. They are always poking their bills around in the straw in their barn.

    I contacted the manufacturers and the following is their response:

    Thank you for contacting Manna Pro. You can use Coop N Compost in your duck barn. Coop N Compost is an all-natural product and is nontoxic. I recommend sprinkling the Coop N Compost on the ground and lay the straw on top of it to avoid constant ingestion, but if they do happen to ingest some it will not hurt them. If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
