Tips for keeping rats and mice out of your chicken coop:

  • Use smaller wire than chicken wire — it does not keep out rodents
  • Do not keep seed out during the night to attract rodents
  • Remove water at night when rats are out to drink
  • Store chicken feed in a tightly-sealed spill proof container
  • Be sure to repair any holes or gaps in your coop that may allow rodents inside
