He saw a large gray rat by the duck house. The ducks attacked it and it ran towards the chicken house. Will they be good watch dogs if the rat comes back? I'm going to try to rat proof this week. Bought some bobcat urine and a rat trap. Need to get the food off the floor and get the eggs asap. In the ICU with my Daughter right now, so not much I can do to help my poor girls. I feel so helpless.
