    I have seen ultrasonic animal deterrents advertised to keep critters out of gardens and such. Do Chickens hear those frequencies? Has anybody ever tried one of these? I am wondering if this could help my gardens out:)

    All of the tests I have heard about show the ultrasonic repellers do not work at all. They are likely to be just as (in)effective on chickens.

    Ditto, I don't know about the tests, but they certainly do not seem to do anything in real life situations.

    Rats Bats you name it, they all seem to laugh at the devices.​

    I agree, they don't work.
