    Almost forgot what I came hear for! I have hatched out 20 peking ducks for a friend and am raising them to market size for her. What are the best ways of controling flies. These ducks are the messiest animals that Ive seen. HELP And the greener the better.

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Ohio. so glad you joined. DE should help but I use pea gravel in my ducks pen. I love the way I can just use a hose to wash away the droppings. [​IMG]
