    I'm pretty sure there's no cure for this but I will give it a go.
    Is there any way I can stop feral birds from eating all of my chickens food/grain. Every time I look out they are in there, even inside their coop, drives me mad!

    Keeping the food inside the coop is a start. Keep the coop shut as often as possible, like put the food in and immediately shut it at the end of the day.
    Or you could try a scarecrow [​IMG]
    I'll keep thinking of other ideas....what kinds of birds are you dealing with here?
