They recently got into the food and there were traces of feces in the feeder. Not sure how they managed to get into a hanging feeder but they did it.
My concern is:
#1 how to safely get rid of them? They are not only eating the feed and costing me money but they are also contaminating the rest of it.
If the chickens happen to eat any rat poop are the eggs not safe for humans to eat anymore? I am worried about disease not only for my birds but also I'm concerned for my family.
Apparently my town is having a huge mouse and rat problem. Even the people without chickens/pets are having a huge issue.
Any advice on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
