F*cking rats took 2 of our girls last week so we upped the bait stations & other places with rat poison. Found the hole where they got in the coop & blocked it as best we could.
But last night, they came again. Killed our beloved 1st-hatched 16 year old bantam Matilda.
So, the war is on! Bought one of these today - Home Guard Electronic Rat Killer 7000 Volt 3 Plate Stainless Steel Trap / Pest Control Device
And some more rat poison.
Too late for my beautiful Matilda but they will pay for that as soon as this arrives!
