In the past I have issues with crows wiping out my corn plots. They pull out the small plants and eat the seed. Now I plant rye with my corn. This works great. They can't seem to find the corn plants in the rye. Then I spray roundup when the corn is 6 inches tall. I planted corn 10 days ago, and again 5 days ago. The neighbor next to me planted 40 acres 12 days ago, and filled in some wet spots a few days ago. I walked down my lane two days ago and found two crows 30 yards apart in the fencerow. They are both dangling from limbs several feet off the ground. Wings wide open, drool hanging out of their beaks. Very close to death. I am sure they ate too much treated corn seed. Not a pretty site. They are a few feet from my neighbors newly planted corn field. I wonder how many pheasants we lose to corn each year. I read the warning label and it saids deadly to birds, animals and people if swallowed.
