Hi all, we are having a rat problem in our hen house. I know all of the traditional ways of getting rid of rats: live traps, glue traps, poison, etc...We have tried live traps and so far no luck. They are so touchy that if the chickens so much as brush them they trip and since we have to put them near the hens food......well you can see the problem. Glue traps are awful as they trap the rat and then they starve to death...ugh. The same issue presents itself with poison. Notwithstanding my personal moral issues with poisoning any animals, the rats live under the coop and it's hot out in Portland right now; I can't have rotting rats underneath my chickens in the middle of summer. Does anyone have other suggestions? This seems like it would be a common problem since rats/mice love the free, easy source of good food. Anything is appreciated!
