My sneaky little kitties go into the coop through the pop door when the chickens are free ranging and eat the food. Tonight I saw a cat (Not mine) climbing the door to the coop and climbing through a gap between the door and the frame. !!! Fixing THAT soon. I don't know how to deter them from eating it during the day when the coop is open. How much food should 18 chickens, 12 going through a molt, eat? (plus 2 cats sneaking a snack...) I went through 15-20 pounds in one day!!!! Is it just me, or is that absolutely crazy!?!?
