So yes, we got now 2 squirrels that turned smart and decided to eat on chicken food. They do not lay eggs so I am not really into squirrel welfare assistance. Thing is, they immediately decided they own the food, and will jump chickens when they come to feeder. Roosters, normally attacking my wife the very moment she sets her foot outside, humbly stand and watch. If I spook squirrles away, chickens will go and eat. Otherwise, they simply stand and watch squirrels fiesting on their food. Started with 1, now we have 2, likely will be more coming. Yes, few BBs help, but I am not home all day long to re-enforce THAT. Wife is home, but she's a female, you know... So, any ideas? Cats, dogs, etc out of question for same wife reason. Chickens obviously free roam. We are fully fenced, but squirrels happen to know how to use trees and climb fences. I am open to good ideas how to keep them at bay once and forever. We are backed by forest. Solution must be wife friendly. Cat would have taken care of this, but..... Not my decision.
