    I have read that they are a good souce of protien, is this true? It also said that you can empty the trap bags every night but i was wondering if anybody just attached a bait/lure to you tractors and let them enjoy.

    We use the baits to attract them to all the pens. At first they wouldn't eat them so we chopped some up and mixed them in their feed. Now they eat them before they can hit the ground. The ducks and guineas naturally go after any small bug that moves.
