Thanks for the reply Chris! I try to pick up the poop as best that I can, but I do miss some. They share about an acre, so it is not in concentrated form or anything. Just a little bit here and there that I might miss. I suppose if "fresh" poop is not of terrible concern, then certainly giving them the worms from this dog poop worm bin would be of even less concern. Whew...thanks again!

Hello! I have 9 ducks and Dash, the Anatolian Shepherd. The ducks free range and they share the yard with Dash. I have just discovered the Ducks eating Dash's dog poop! I googled this and everyone seems okay with the ducks behaving this way, the only advice would be to try to keep the dog poop picked up, but nothing about it being particularly dangerous for the ducks. Also, they have no concerns really about the eggs the ducks produce (which we will eat). So first question would be, is this unsafe for the ducks? I.e. could it make them sick? Second question is I've been thinking about a solution for the dog poop anyway, currently I am piling it up out of reach of all animals near our septic system. However, this will be our first summer with this pile and I don't think it will work well in the heat (we are in Texas). I am thinking about making a worm bin for the dog poop. I would then use the worms to feed to the ducks for added nutrition. I figure this is a great way to raise worms for the ducks, and get rid of the dog poop - 2 for 1. Has anyone done this/heard of anyone doing this? Are there major risks involved? Thank you so much in advance for your advise!!
