I discovered the feed dispenser was being emptied rather quickly during the last few days, and wondering why until I saw a chipmunk sitting in teh feeder helping itself to the food.
When it realised I was watching the chipmunk ran for cover....under the henhouse!

I found a small entrance that led to a space we had over looked during the modifications to our girls accomadation.

After some research on chipmunks and chickens we purchased a rat trap (rodentrap) and captured 2 in 2 hours! (chipmunks...not chickens lol!)

Apparently the chipmunks will take as much food as they can carry into their burrow and cause an added attraction for rats...

anyone else have chipmunk problems?

:)

lol I can imagine the little chipmunk sitting there cramming its face full of feed. Luckily we do not have the problem, our cat keep the rodents at bay.

Has anyone found roosters to be good at being aggressive towards nuisance things like rats/squirrels?

I have a rooster that is aggressive towards my 4 year old daughter.:( Scared the crap out of her.:eek: He didn't hurt her just came up and flaped his wings. That was only the first time that happened, I think it scared the crap out of the rooster too.:D
