Mice getting into my feeder.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I use an outdoor King Feeder with Rain Hat:

What can I do?

I don't imagine that they are eating much but I'm concerned about the mouse droppings and other mouse stuffs being deposited into the food.

I just happened to see a metal feeder that is rat proof. It has a sort of step that the chickens step on and opens for them to eat but rats can't get in.  You might google it.  I don't know what the name was, sorry.  I do know that it was like $60 but I'm thinking it might be worth it.
