Chickens As Mousers

    My chicken caught a mouse! Actually, it was a short-tailed shrew, and she may have found it already dead, but she looked very proud with the little furry rodent hanging from her beak. I traded her some cracked corn for the carcass, as I wasn't sure of the cause of death. Anybody else have experience with chickens preying on mice?
