    One of my lohoman brown hens has been eating lots of mice recently. She mainly attacks the cats for them but I beleive she has caught and killed her own mice. Does anyone else have any chickens with funny dietry behaviours?

    I went out one day to find 2 dead mice in the coop, presumably killed by the chickens, and when I opened the door, some of the flock picked up the mice and went out for a good game of tug-of-war.....

    This one that I have swallows the mice whole. One of my cats caught and ate a wild pigeon once and left its gizzard. The chickens had a good game of tug o war with that
