okay, the other day my daughter and I where out and about with the chickens and all of a sudden they come running in their enclosed area... I knew one of them had gotten something they didn't want to share... so we walk over to where they are and notice one had caught a mouse!! She ate it whole..after trying to pluck it open I guess... so yesterday my daughter and I were with the silkies again and low and behold one of my EE's had caught a mouse.... she ended up eating it whole as well... Is it alright for them to do that? I suppose that free range chickens would come encounter mice but never thought if they would try and eat them...?? Also... another question...lol I have 2 sumutras pic of them when we first got them is my avatar... anyway... now they are 7 months old now and one has started to lay...which is a good thing. But now she is very aggressive towards the other sumatra sex is unknown by me now... thought it was a boy... cause of the way the feathers where heading but now not sure...?? I have been keeping them with my silkies because I knew that my other chics would just pick on them... so now I have one who is laying eggs and aggressive towards the other sumatra and my young silkie Roo.... Any ideas of what I should do about her?? and shouldn't I be able to tell hat the other sumatra is by now? I have also looked for the spurs that the roos should get but it doesn't really look like "it" has them... If I can take some pics of them today I will post to see what you all think "it" is...? thanks in advance!
