    6000 yen later it turns out it was the result of a jungle rat bite. [​IMG] caught the rat and relocated her to a new grid square...

    Wow, big rat. Unfortunately I find one rat usually has friends, so keep an eye out.

    glad you caught that rat but are you sure it is not dry pox? it does not look like a bite. btw that rat would have killed chicken - my opinion. I have pox in my flock, looks like that.

    It was lab tested and not Pox. Cleared up a week later. The rest of the chickens and my Raptors did not catch anything. All is good
