Hi All,

I got home from work today to fined that the local Pink and Gray Galahs have been breaking up the Styrofoam in my shed roof and dumping it on the ground. Off course my ducks have been eating this Styrofoam any opportunity they get. I have vacuumed it up as much as practical but the ducks do a better job of this than i do.

This is obviously not great but now that it is cleaned up do i need to worry about the ducks?

Cheer's,
Zinn

I truly don't know all about that, but if I ever get concerned about my ducks eating something questionable, I add a quarter teaspoon of food grade activated charcoal (it's a supplement) to a pint of water and give that to them to drink from overnight. Activated charcoal absorbs toxins.

Remember, not the briquettes - those are nasty - it's the activated charcoal found in health food stores and drugstores.

Can you cover the styrofoam so that the Galahs cannot get to it?

X2 and I would keep an eye on them for a day or so.
