So we have a mixed flock... We have 4 EES and one barred rock EE mixed roo.( our neighbors don't care they like the roo we use to have one) so now that it finally is getting cold (for like! 3 days) and we brought them in because last cold snap we lost one. But we discovered last night we have some rats in the house. I was wondering if anyone is paranoid. I have my daughters old baby monitor so I can hear them, all the lights on and making sure I won't lose anymore! Is anyone else really paranoid?? I am just paranoid because we have Had such a rough journey being chicken owners. We have lost 2 flocks one to a dog that we rescuerd (have since found her a good home) and the last one to a predator, we assume it was a possum. We have a heat lam in the coop but I wasn't sure if they could withstand about 40- 50 degre weather, can they?
