Hey all. I've got a problem with a rat. It's not harming my chickens,it's not eating eggs,it's not really doing anything. It's my mom who's freaking out. She's said that if we can't get rid of it then my chickens are the ones to go. She's a city girl so I guess I understand,but the chickens aren't at fault anyway... It's only one Brown Rat,he's made his home under my chicken coop. I really don't care if he stays,he's not even doing anything. But I need help.I've already got 6 new babies that I need to integrate soon,but if I have to get rid of my original 9 then they're pointless to keep raising. Does anyone have any ideas? I would prefer to do this in a humane way...as humane as you can get with a rat.... I'm really worried about losing my flock,any help would be appreciated!
