I was just wondering, how does everyone keep squirrels and rodents out of the coop? I have 8 chickens, and I’m not sure if squirrels bring diseases but I just don’t want them eating the feed. I’ve seen them in the yard and scaling the walls of the coop. I hope they won’t attack me. What do I do? I would rather not injure or kill the squirrels, but I’m a little more worried about my chickens and myself’s safety, so anything helps.
