I was watching my chickens in the garden and I noticed one of them running and the others chasing her when I took a close look at what she had it was a mouse dead I guess she did it I got the mouse away from her a thew it away. She followed me all the way to the trash can want nothing more than to eat it. Is there any risk to them eating mice I have never seen them in ther feed or coop but with the grasshoppers that are eating garden I have been putting them in there to help with the grasshoppers but if they found one mouse I'm sure there is more.
- the bird is the word
I always let mine eat them and if I find any 'pinkys' I give them to the birds...they love them
There is no harm in them eating mice. I have heard people share stories of chickens eating lizards, frogs and even small snakes.
My hens eat mice all the time. Protein is good for them. (I wouldn't leave out any rat posions, just in case. They are going likely going to eat the mice whether or see them do it or not)
