Greetings, girls. I came here since it turned out that I have a rat problem.
I have 8 chickens in a small paddock and rats are burrowing in from field next door. I do not want to use poison as I have other animals (two dogs and one semi-stray cat who can’t do anything about these intruders). I don’t want to use sticky traps as I feel that they are inhumane.
Still, I’m afraid that they might harm the chickens. Does anyone know any other ways to get rid of them?
upd: totally forgot about this post! Just got an e-mail it was approved. We decided to give ultrasonic traps a try (got them here). They should be here tomorrow. Will keep you updated.
