Today I saw a group of rats working together to successfully open the poultry treadle feeder

That's amazing!   :o

Get a video if you can and put it on YouTube.  It will get viewed a gazillion times and make you fourpence!
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

I never had such a problem with rats as in recent months! In fact never seen one for couple of years.
Recently i see them several times a day!
2 or 3 at a time!
They have nest underneath my shed. They had one next to the chicken coop, but I havent seen them inside since i flooded it wifh a hose. They were teying to dog under a feed bin.
Growing loads of fruits and vegetables! Raising dairy goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits on 1/2 acre in the middle of the city of Leicester, using permaculture methods.
