    I have what I believe is a filed mouse living amongst my girls. My hubby says its a rat, but he calls everything a rat [​IMG]

    We have found a nest with babies in it, so their is a daddy out there somewhere. SHe does't seem to be bothering the chickens, but I still want her gone....any suggestions?

    Chunk those dudes in the coop. Chickens LOVE LOVE LOVE to eat mice.
