I’m new to keeping chickens and we have built a WIR on an existing veg patch. I knew it had to be fox proof and bought ridiculously expensive wire mesh that’s specifically fox proof for the run! But alas, as I’m new to it all I didn’t think about rats!! The squares are 2inch.
I’m now really worried we’ll have a rat issue! but more upset because I was told that we would be able to leave the eglu classic door open at night so they can let themselves in and out (providing we had a secure run, which I thought we did!) but is that now not possible.. would rats attack the chickens in their sleep!?
looking for some reassurance that I haven’t made a huge mistake 🙈chickens arrive this weekend!
