    My girls got hold of a mouse this AM and ate it! Is this OK or can they get sick from this?

    a couple of months ago my cat "gave" my hens a mouse, they shredded it before I could get there, no evidence left behind. It doesn't seem to have caused any problems, but be aware mice often carry worms, so something to watch for in general.
