Holes in cale leaves

I am a novice gardener that's happlily working a garden in the house I bought in Brevard NC. I planted a couple cale (or is it kale ) plants. They have responded great. Doubled in size and we have started to pick leaves for dinner. In the last week or so I have noticed lots of holes in the leaves. I haven't seen bugs on the plants. Please advise.

Thanks, Cliff

Giant plants

What is this it's got to be ten foot tall. Growing by my bird feeder. When the foliage is ripped it has milk.

Ants with Red head and black bottom

I live in Transylvania County and will be married in a field on my property in one months time. I was cleaning the field and was swarmed by the above ants that began bite me. I found that they were nested in old rail road tie edgings that I had on the perimeter of the field. I have since removed the timbers and have taken to a land fill. My question is how do I treat the field so that the remaining ants do not bite my guests? There are no evident mounds so I do not think that they are Alleghany mounding ants, also no damaged plants in the areas of the nest.

Guinea coop

I have an 8 x 12 shed with a loft to make into a coop for French guineas. I want to provide a door into the loft from the outside so the guineas would have to fly into it to enter the coop. I plan on making a platform for them outside the door and another inside. Will they be able to do this, or do they have to walk into the coop like chickens do? My keets are 5 days old, and I want to get the shed ready before moving them to the coop.

Chicken-House Problem

I know chickens attract mice and rats. I have used bait with some good results but want to do more. What might also work in a four-season climate at 2500 ft., under my concrete-floored building?
