    I'm pretty sure I've got rats in my cool :( eggs cracked in half and licked clean. How do I get rid of them without hurting my ducks? Thanks!

    I purchase each year a product which is safe with plants and other pets, it is in powder form, not a poison but a deterrent, mice and rats think the danger is higher than the reward and avoid to enter the space. I usually spread around my back garden, because I do keep parrots in an outside aviary and it would destroyed my birds if one was to enter the aviary. Name of the product: 'Rat Repel' (or Ratty organic rodent repellent), Amazon sells it.
