Wild bird dan­ger

Your Chickens - - Ask Our Experts -

QHow can I keep wild birds away from my chicken feed­ers and drinkers?

AVic­to­ria says: The mod­ern trea­dle feed­ers are ideal if you are trou­bled by e.g. jack­daw flocks. There are many sizes to suit an area and flock. Keep­ing feed in the hut is an­other way if there is room, but you must keep wa­ter in the hut as well if feed is there – chick­ens will choke on dry feed. Your hut must have suf­fi­cient ven­ti­la­tion to pre­vent con­den­sa­tion form­ing.
