Hi all,

We are just moving into our best farm season now and moving right along 
with us are zillions of slugs and snails.  Does anyone have experience 
with ducks as slug control?  Are different varieties of ducks more 
passionate slug eaters?  less passionate vegetable eaters?  What are the 
problems/challenges with ducks on a farm?  Can they protect themselves 
against large hungry boa constrictors or do they need some kind of 
screened shelter at night?

We'd be grateful for any information from your experience or references.

Happy Thanksgiving to all and all best wishes,

Zone 10
