In the Brooder
- Apr 29, 2011
Does anyone else have these birds causing problems? I have had a few around, but now I have a flock of 10 or 15 birds and they are pooping in the ducks water and getting into their feed. They are so bold that even though I put the feed in the ducks house, they are just going in and making a mess inside. We are cold and snowy here and they should be moving south, but they are still here and just causing a major mess. I am going to attempt to cover the outside pen tomorrow to hopefully keep them out. This is the first year I've had any issues with them. I'm nervous as I've read and been told that they are the worst for carrying diseases and mites/lice etc.
