Before I spend a ton of time trying to find this online, I thought I would come here and see if anybody knows anything about this. I read one time that you can use hot pepper or peppers in birdseed to keep the squirrels away. Apparently the birds cannot taste it and it does not hurt them. Does anyone know if this is the same for ducks. My goats keep stealing the duck food, and they are as wide as they are tall. I thought if it is safe for ducks I could throw some hot pepper seeds in their food in that would fix my goat boys! I love them very much, but they are such pigs and I do not know how to keep them out of the food. They find a way around everything we've done. So, if anyone has any idea if this would work and it would be completely safe for my ducks, Then I'd appreciate hearing about it. Thanks.
