    My sheep eat everything we putout specifically for the chicken. We have hanging feeders but they knock them around until the feed spills out and still eat it. Has anyone made or seen any type of box or pen type thing that we could make so only the ducks and chickens can access the food and not the sheep?

    Chicken feeds have enough copper in them to KILL sheep.

    You need a strong fence the chickens can go through, but the sheep can't​
