Thank u all for ur help !! I appreciate it!
Ok folks, I was on the "Texas" thread bc I have stupid fire ants & carpenter ants by my duck house & pen . They had lots of "home remedies" safe for chickens, but I have ducks. Would those same remedies be safe for ducks too: cornstarch, cinnamon, plant mint/spearmint, dry grits/Cream of Wheat?
dry grits and cream of wheat they will most likely eat including the chickens, I wonder if hot water and white vinegar mixed and poured on tho the hills would work.
Can anyone help me identify the breed of this brown duckling? I got him/her over the weekend at Tractor Supply with the mallard but cant remember what they said it was. I am thinking a KC but not sure. Also any guesses as to age? Thanks in advance!
KC, maybe 2 not more than 3 wks. Fairly new Ducky parent myself, just going by mine that are 6 wks today. In the pic, it looks twice the size of the Mallard.
Wld the grits or C of W hurt the ducks?
Thanks for the help! The KC is bigger than the mallard.
I don't think so but would kind of defeat the purpose of killing the ants if the ducks eat it. lol I'd try the hot water as hot as you can get it with very strong white vinegar added and poured on the mounds in the holes.
Thanks! Now if I can find those tricky carpenter ant's mound! The fire ants is to easy.
I have 2 khakis they're now 4 weeks old today! I never knew that they'd be so much fun.
