Hi all I hope I posted this in the right place. I am having major problems with wild brush turkeys eating my chickens food. My 3 chickens are free range so they get the run of the backyard. I usually put their food outside their coop but 6 brush turkeys have been kicking the food over and eating it. I then decided to leave their food inside their coop but now all 6 of the brush turkeys go inside the coop, scare the living daylights out of my chickens while they are trying to lay and chase away my chickens from their food. First I tried chasing the turkeys away making loud noises every time I saw one, that didn't work, they came back 10 minutes later, so I tried throwing rocks near them to scare them away, again they keep coming back, so I started actually throwing rocks at them, they still come back. Anyways, now I am here. I am at wits end, they eat all the chickens food - I have to buy a $20 bag of food a week for 3 chickens. The only thing I can think of is to 1. Kill them, which I don't want to do because I hate killing things, even insects. 2. Get a dog, which I can't do because my SO and I work nights or 3. Net the whole yard, which I can't do because it is not my house. Has anyone had an issue like this before? Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.
