Keeping mice/rats out of chicken feeders at night

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

We keep ours in one of those trash cans with a lid and it does keep them out! It's in our shed and we did have a mice problem but now any longer!!!
