i went to collect the eggs this evening, hens roosting like they normally do. heard a scratching & ruffling noise. thought nothing of it, just maybe the hens shuffling about. low & behold 2 rats came running out of the coop. now i know why the food has been disappearing pretty quickly. anyone got any suggestions to killing them? i could put traps to kill them out of the way of the birds, but anyone got any idea how many rats there could be by experience? the shed is on an allotment & theres a few plots with chickens, suppose ive been waiting for them to venture onto my patch.
