I've got squirrels everywhere and they're eating all the food. un And I'm worried that they carry diseases which can spread to my chooks. My chooks have a coop and a pen, but I let them out of the pen all of the time. (Locking them in the pen is only in case I have to be away for a long time) So I leave the food in the pen with the door slightly open (I've got plastic on the walls for wind protection) so they can come in and hang out on really windy and cold days. Now the squirrels are coming in and eating up a storm - any ideas. ps my DH has a good pellet gun and I might be asking him for help if there's no alternative.
