    Looks good and should keep mice out when closed. Metal wont get chewed ether. Pricey??? YES.. There are very cheap versions of feeders that you can make yourself from a 5 gallon plastic bucket and a 3 inch PVC elbow. Total cost under $10. I CAN FIND THE THREAD FOR YOU IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE INFO..
    WISHING YOU BEST :thumbsup
