Rat banquet. Might pay to bring them inside under a light until they are older
Put the rooster in there
Might be same problem as Sean is having - seems like a chook house is like a magnet to rats
Have you got a trail camera Sako - see what is going on at night
Hope you are making progress on your rat Sean - payback time
Did you deal to your rat problem @Sean?
Here's one of mine, a green legged hatch stag.
Did you know that's where we get the term 'hens party' and 'stag party' from? A stag being a young gamefowl cock. They are kept penned together sorted by their respective sexes until the young cocks reach maturity and have to be separated otherwise they kill each other. Naturally he is married off with a hen.
A stag party is a bunch of non-mature, non-married fighting cockerels, kept separate from the hens
No I did not catch the rat
...amitie, respect mutuel et amour...
...le beau et le bon, cela rime avec Breton!...
C'est plus facile de juger un juge que de juger un chien!!

best way to catch a cat,wild or domestic, is a cage trap with fish as bait. I use a piece of stocking and put a herring in it and tie it to the trip. Had to put small chicken wire around the end of the cage or a cat will try to pull the fish out from outside. I have caught 5 cats here this way
Yes my neighbour is feeding wildcats as she says they keep the rabbits down, i prefer the rabbits, any cat i see is a gonner
