If I can’t keep seed in the trap because the chickens keep eating it, is it not likely that sparrows will be lured into the trap? In other words, what would encourage sparrows to enter the trap without any seed?
I do have another concern, however, that may actually make sense. I understand that some birds get stuck in the trap and can get injured. Well, for those who know about chickens, they can stick there neck out pretty far in some pretty small spaces. Is there any chance that one of my chickens could get its head stuck while trying to eat bait?
I just ordered the Deluxe Repeating Sparrow Trap. After I put in my order, I realized that it might be possible for one of my chickens to become trapped. The back door of this trap is 4 1/2″ in diameter. One of my chickens is a Rhode Island Red. She’s on the smallish side. However, she’s full grown so I doubt that she could wiggle in there- I hope not!
