Therein lies part of the problem.

 

You could put out less feed daily so they will eat if off the ground.

You could get a treadle feeder.

You could make one of these like I did..but I keep my feed in the coop, might not work for you if you feed outside.

 

You'll still have to trap to winnow down the population.

You can also try to eliminate places they can nest in/near the coop/run.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
