Rats in the run

Recommended Posts

Rats are squeezing between the bars at night to eat the guinea pig nuggets. I’ve started bringing their food in at night to discourage them, but I was wondering if anyone else has added a layer of chicken wire to the outside of the eglu run to rat-proof it?

Yes many have added wire to the outside of the run. Although chickenwire might not be your best choice. Small gauge bird wire is a safer option.

Thank you. I’ll order some and get to work. Seems like a bit of a design flaw as the mesh on most tradition hutches is rat proof.
