I have 2 peafowl, 5 ducks and 2 chicks. The peahen is sitting on 7 eggs currently. They are all very meticulously contained however, I woud love to allow them to wander around on the property free range. The problem with that are the foxes, opossums, racoons, owls, and hawks. The ducks and chicks are a month old and I am fencing in the yard now. Can I keep them in the fenced in yard during the day time even though these preditors are around? I just got a live animal trap and set it with some tasty ground beef yesterday. I anxiously went out this morning at 5 am and found the trap door closed but no animal inside! The trap was filled with dirt! Looks like the fox kicked dirt all around the trap trying to cover it. I am inclined to put out ground beef with poison in it. What is a good poison and where can I get it? I don't think rat poison would be effective enough. So I think instead of dealing with all these blasted traps I will just toss out raw ground beef seasoned with a tasty strong poison. I'm GOING to get them! What poison should I use?
