I saw a weasel a few days ago and started to lock my chickens up at night because of it. Is it a threat? Will it hurt them? My father went out and shot it, but we don't know if its dead or not....please tell me, will it hurt my chickens? Im really scared...I don't know what weasels eat, Ive heard that they sometimes eat chickens but I don't know if its true I don't want dead chickens.
