    Hi
    I'm in Queensland Australia and wondered if any Muscovy duck keepers here can tell me if they are prone to eating and being poisoned by cane toads.....I have a few million here and so far it's put me off getting ducks as I don't fancy them popping it after eating one stupid toad.

    Hi I;m not sure if a Muscovy would eat a cane toad, I haven't ever seen my Muscovy's eat toads but they will eat a frog in a split sec. snakes etc. I did find this online http://www.canetoads.com.au/03032009mr.htm
    One of my ducks ate a 9-10 inch Copper head snake and lived to tell about it.
