Hello,

We have the usual winter problem with rats and mice.

We have baits set away from everything so only rats and mice can get to it, except there is other food available from the grain feeders at night.

Does anyone have any ideas to prvent the mice and rats geting in to the feeders, ours are the hanging type.
Besides taking the feeders down everynight and locking them in a sealed container I can't think of anything else to do.

Great site I look forward toi many chats with the chicken families

thanks for your replies

Hello,

Thanks for your thoughts!
We have done the above.

But they might be eating the leftover bits on the ground.
We just have to be patient I guess!

Thanks

Thanks so much for all your comments!
I am not really a cat person we have cats that live next door to us and we have a fox trap to catch any stray/feral cats and foxes.
I really like the idea of the bottle trap I guess the mice die in there so it could get quite smelly and full.

Happy chooking!
