They are not big, just slightly bigger than the 2 month chickens and they are the same age. Anyway, my sister said there was a dead rat in the run. Only the turkeys are out at night because my sister still puts her chickens back to "bed" I didn't see that rat, but she said like it could have been pecked in the neck, but there was no sign or torn skin, bleeding, or any other trauma. She just said it looked like the fur was pulled from the skin.
