    Okay so we have a rat problems it seems. One of the babies that was still inside the egg was pulled out and killed. I do know the culprit is a rat. If I were to bring my broody hen with her babies in the house with her babies how old would they need to be before I put them back in the chicken coop. At what age do rat just leave them alone. If anyone knows this would be a great help. [​IMG]
