That's the problem. Makes no sense to set it up in the run at night when the rats have no reason to be out, since the feeder's capped...had a trail cam going for a while & saw no nighttime activity anyway.

Useless to place it where the rats ain't, and can't shut the chickens out...feed, water, & coop all there.

3 Little Red Hens (RSL),1 big BCM rooster , & a raft of their youngin's

Not but 3 kinds of snakes I'm afraid of; big ones, little ones, and live ones

Have Crappie rod, will travel

Call me Ken,Whites, Whitey, or Red Dog; just don't call me late for supper

Put it outside the pen, the rats will show for peanut butter. If they show up outside the pen than the same ones will be in your pen. Couldn't hurt 😆
