We have a few cats that live in the feed room, plus one heck of a jack russell mix dog. She is tough on mice & rats ... plus a mole or two ... if you don't mind the holes. lol
I placed a pic of my mother-in-law near the feeder, that worked pretty well. My wife replaced it with a pic of me, worked even better. A lovely woman, she is.Hello,
Does anyone have any ideas to prvent the mice and rats geting in to the feeders, ours are the hanging type.
That's what I do as well.I've also put a cat in the run. JAI always gave them just enough for the day. I fed them in the morning and let them free range the rest of the day. I still noticed I had mice no matter what. It is a little more work but putting up the food is about the only way to keep them out of it.
I have one and it works but I had to use some washers to get the weights right.Old thread I know, but here is a solution for rats in the chicken coop. Works like a charm, pays for itself quickly if you have any rats. ratproofchickenfeeder.net
