Rats getting into run

Recommended Posts

Can only suggest the usual:

Remove food & water overnight which you are already doing

Block up any holes as soon as they appear, some people suggest wire wool plus weldmesh / hardware cloth

Remove other food sources outside the run wherever possible

Remove / tidy up hiding places and especially near the run

Raised hen houses help so they cannot make their home underneath & nip out for a snack whenever they feel like one 🤣

Borrow a terrier / mouser

Basically you need to make it more trouble than it’s worth to the little perishers!

ps not sure if the sonic repellers work or if they upset the chooks who have quite acute hearing
