As some of you may have read in some of my earlier posts we had 14 baby ducks hatch in the fenced in garden. I had a nesting box in there for the chickens early in the spring so they could clean up the garden and one of our female ducks flew over the fence and laid all those eggs. The thing i'm not sure about is, will they hurt any of my plants? So far they have just been eating bugs and such. They just scurry around right through the green beans and peppers and never seem to think anything about them. I really enjoy watching them play and grow in the garden but don't want to loose anything to them. Has anyone else ever had a situation like this? I don't want to put them out until they get a little bigger. Lots of coyote around and ofcourse the dog would play them to death. Any thoughts are welcome.
Momma Duck is telling them not to bother any of the garden plants. ( I hope )
I'm watching you.
