Ten with regular chicken wire that would be a possibility. I have never seen a chicken ear a dead rat and I have a Tom cat who spends his day sleeping/hunting and is still very much alive.

I have been keeping a spread sheet of Texas BYC members for several years.  Right now it has 274 members on it.  Of course some are no longer members or might have visited only a few times. 

Texas,  we are strong !

Welcome El Paso. Sure know what you mean about some color here in West Texas. We have a bit more green than you guys do but anything helps.

Living where the Central Plains and the Texas Hill Country meet  with 20 chickens, 5 bantams, 15 new chicks, 22 ducks, 11 geese, 7 dogs. Thirteen miles from nowhere and a short drive to anywhere. What more could I want!!!!!

Right Now I am Getting A Goat And Donkey, I Have Chickens, And I Have A Garden. I Think All You Should Need Is Some Goats, Chickens, And A Garden. But that is what I think. Look it up and see what you need to Qualify for The Ag Exemption.

Thank you for the replies.  I have 7 acres.  Part of the reason I asked about Ag Exemption, is I don't want to be bothered by nosy officials.  :)

 

Rooster, congratulations on the chicks!!

I've seen it. Threw a mouse pinky at my birds because I got curious and caught the results on video.

We have 3.48 acres and we have an Ag Exemption. Our qualification is because we "raise and/or sell poultry and/or poultry eggs".

I've never had my chickens eat a rat but they will kill it and make sure it's dead. Looked like hamburger with a tail.

Currently "we" are myself, Sydney my female chow/golden retriever mix, Annie a lab mix and one each silver laced Wyandotte, gold laced Wyandotte, Buff Orpington, and Americana.
