    My rooster caught a mouse, me and six hens could not get it away from him. will it hurt him to eat the mouse? no poison anywhere around, Thanks, Phil
     
  2. It won’t hurt him at all. Chickens catch and eat mice all of the time.

    It won't hurt him at all. Anything they catch is fair game for chickens.

    It's ok
     
  5. There is a reason the six hens were also trying to get it. Chickens are omnivores and eat meat as well as plants.

    Hey, Fayonan! You seem to be a new member. I just wanted to welcome you to the forum and invite you to tell us a little about you and your chickens. You will probably need to start your own thread to do that. :frow
