I am new to the wonderful hobby of raising chickens. I have 2, 10 week old RIR's that have recently moved into the back yard. They have a house along with a completely fenced run but my kiddos love to let them out to roam the yard and play with them during the day. Today we had a yard full of kiddos and they and the chickens were playing up a storm when I noticed a large fire ant bed near the swingset. Well I just headed towards the garage to grab the bag of ant poison when it dawned on me that it sure looks a lot like the starter food. Hmmm...bad idea. SO what the heck to I kill fire ants with now? I need to kill the little pests and here in East Texas, that's a never ending battle.
