    I caused a massacre .. I was cleaning out the pen one day and moved a dog house and there was a bed of tiny mice.. the chickens destroyed them before I could really scream. I swear one swallowed one whole.. not one of the babies .a larger one .its tail hung out of her beak for awhile.

    Will this make them sick . ? I never knew they were such killers!

    I don't put any type of poisons out

    Wait a week or two and then worm them. Rats and mice carry worms.
