Obsessive eating of feces.

I know a lot of dogs sooner or later show an interest in eating feces, but what do you do when it becomes obsessive?  I think I could almost handle it if she was eating her own, but my dog has taken an apparent liking to eating duck poop.  I have ducks as well as rabbits and years ago my family had a dog that loved rabbit poop, but my dog I have now is obsessed with duck poop.  I can't even take her out in the barn or anywhere around the barn because she will obsessively search for every pile of feces she can find.  She will even lick it off of my boots when I come back inside the house and if she gets the chance she will lick my boots clean.  Other than the obvious fact that it's insanely unhealthy I'm also worried about various parasites or disease going from bird to dog.  Setting aside the million and one questions I have as to WHY she does this, I need to know how to get her to stop.  So far nothing works.  The last time she went for my boots I literally had to grab her muzzle, hold her mouth shut, and pull her away while also hanging on to her collar.  The entire time she was throwing a fit and and kept trying to go after my boots again.  Yes, I can keep my boots in an area where she can't get to them but I still have to get the problem corrected because she's gotten to the point where she constantly walks with her mouth to the ground looking for poop to eat.  Any ideas?
