Chickens as Mousers

I've seen chickens get mice a few times with our two flocks but was never able to see it happen and have my camera close when it did. This is Big Rock (aka Crooked-Comb when she is being obnoxious), moments after catching a rodent. It was still marginally alive at this point but Big Rock was being pursued by the flock for their shares and hadn't been able to kill it yet.

Yes : ). Buckeye chickens have been nicknamed mousers since they're experts when it comes to catching mice. We've had it happen several times. Just a little more protein can't hurt.
