    Don't plan on having any vegetation of you let your ducks in the garden. I only let mine in after the season is over. They strip everything down to numbs within a few days.

    Pro they eat snails and slugs, and fertilize as they go

    Do you care about your garden? If you don't, only one way to find out. I wouldn't.

    Plus if you have tomatoes, potatoes, foxglove or buttercups and they eat the leaves, it's bye-bye duckies.

    There was a sign there about not feeding the birdsdue to the area being a common abandon point and not wanting to over populate and create unsafe micro organizms. The coots looked really cool tho.
