When I chicken tractored, I went ahead and tried the method of planting pretty much right away on top of chicken tractored ground (with maybe 10 days of wait time). Unless I threw hydrated lime over the chicken's "work" prior to throwing half a bag of soil on top, nothing really grew. But using the hydrated lime for adjustment, I could grow anything wonderfully. Then the raccoons killed all four of my birds, dug up several plants till they wouldn't replant, winter set in hard, I got a little depressed about the whole thing (seriously), and the garden is now grown over. Enter my new ducklings. Things will be different this time. I have an electric zapper around the top and bottom of fence, I'm not going to use the moveable tractor cages like I did before, since the ducks won't be able to fly out of the 6 foot fence, and I am going to section the garden off so that they can spend a month in each section (100 sq ft), giving me a six month rotation of planting (this came from some serious math efforts, finding approx. how much droppings my duck species voids a day, and how much nitrogen 100 sq ft of dirt will need). When some crops have grown to sufficient height, I plan to let the ducks in for a day at a time here and there for bug and slug control. I need it! The dang moth caterpillers were one of the bigger reason for my previously mentioned depression. Viscous, those things! As you can see, I'm pretty into it, but I haven't had any luck finding other enthusiasts. Gardening forums typically focus on just gardening, and duck enthusiasts on ducks. I would be overjoyed to hear from anyone with experience in this. Anybody?
