Seeing DUKW's and Duckmen in various threads, this seemed right and proper.

We tried something similar with the chickens in the veg garden. It... did not go well for the veg!

A couple of years ago there was a bad locust swarm in large parts of SE US where I'm at.  A local bird sanctuary came out to the feilds and released a ton of birds who immediately had lunch, dinner, and leftovers.

I'm sure I saw a 'news clip'.....years ago, where Chinese (??) farmers used oodles of ducks, to try and 'decimate' locust swarms.
Don't think it could have been that successful.

Anyone else remember that ?

Decimation against a locust swarm wouldn't get you very far.
