    Found a vet in cherry hill nj. he's wonderful Babes are in hospital 1 has a broken wing and swelling around the joint in his leg and a pocket of air under his skin. Flapper's beak e-rays came back with no broken bones and we hope to fix the beak enough so he can fuction.

    After going over all the predators we think I have a wood rat under the coop. How do I get rid of him without hurting my birds?

    Thanks to all for your help [​IMG]

    there are several types of live traps... if you are having a pred problem try looking in the predator forum for info on dealing with that problem
