Rat Bait...Hey Sid

Thanks for your reply to my question below. I was curious about chickens and rat bait because we lost a chicken on Friday and I'm eliminating senarios as to what might have happened...have a very upset eight year old daughter...the chicken just happened to be her favourite. We first thought the bird had been taken by a fox or eagle but we found its lifeless body on visible injuries. I put rat bait near the chicken house earlier in the week. The chickens can't get to it but they would be able to eat mice that had. Hhhmmm. I think we'll just have say the chicken died of unknown causes and let her rest in peace.

Am glad that I may have been a help to put your mind at ease. Am curious was the chicken still in the chicken house when you found it or was it some distance away? I have found dead chickens that appeared to have been drug off and not a mark on them.I suspect some kind of varmit.

The chicken was in the garden away from the chicken house. My daughter suggested it might have been bitten by a's that time of the year for them. I guess anything is possible.

DeadCarp - surely you know the song Clare --    Posted 11-03-2002 at 13:22:10       [Reply]  [No Email]
"All Australian Boys Need a shed!" :) I think that goes for all boys anywhere!

Yeah, I know the song. And when his shed gets so full he can hardly move in it the solution is build another one. :)
