So we hang our metal feeder under the coop and it's raised about 12" from the ground. Do I need to still be worried about mice eating it? Can't wait to buy Grandpa's Feeder. Also, can someone recommend a feeder that can be on the ground that won't let them spill pellets everywhere. It's all over the run floor and now I know the mice are gonna get it. We are in Colorado full of snow and the girls won't walk to the feeder so I need to put something small in the "huddle box". Suggestions please!!!! Pic is of the girls looking frigid.
