WELL, TO THE HEN. WAS DEFINITELY HARMFUL TO THE RAT.... My BIG SLW caught a baby rat last evening. this was followed by keep-away chase...not even yogurt and raisins could lure away from the dead, limp rat, which she ATE!!!! DISGUSTING!!!! i've seen them eat lizards, even a small garden snake, but this really grossed me out. so, what i really want to know is: can this hurt the chickens? if there is one baby, there's more. (not to mention rat parents) HELP!
