David from Seattle, Wa writes

I have chickens, ducks and turkeys. I have a rat problem, now that I'm leaving food out for them.

The rats are multiplying rapidly. I've hiden traps with peanut butter on them and caught a few, babies that don't know better. But the large rats seem to avoid the traps. What can I use to kill them all without killing my birds?


We would recommending using a rodenticide inside of a rat bait station such as the Protecta Rat Bait Station . This will keep the chickens, ducks, turkey from consuming the bait, yet provide a feeding station for the rats. This station can hold up to 6 large rats and up to 1lb of bait. It is tamper resistant for children, dogs, cats, etc. Contrac Blox Rodenticide is a great choice because secondary poisoning is very minimal with Contrac as an antidote to the poison (vitamin K1) is readily available.
