<p>How do you feed your chickens so that the feed stays tidy and not strewn all over the place?  We're experiencing a rat problem this year.....ugh, it just creeps me out.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks for any advice!</p>

<p>Are you feeding pellets or crumbles or something else?  Coop or free range?  In general chickens keep their pellets tidier and strew about the crumbles. </p>

<p>I give the hens pellets in the coop. I throw some scratch in the run when I let them out. Put some snap traps around with something yummy on them for the rats.</p>

<p>The chickens are in their coop in the am and free range in the afternoon.</p>

<p>We feed a ground feed that we buy from a local farmer. </p>

<p>What do the muscovy ducks do to take care of the rats?  I'm intrigued....I know someone who has some....it may be an option!</p>
