I saw my first rat yesterday. Yuck. It's in the run with my 2 new chicks. I guess I'll move them. I made bait stations today, and a bucket trap. Yesterday I saw him under a tarp that's over the tractor. Today I see him again, and he disappeared. Then, across the yard, I grab a container, and a rat runs out. I'm devastated. Not only that, No matter what I do , my neighbor has 2 chickens, and they just dump bread or food in the run, which is barely fenced. So there's a breeding ground right there.
