we have rats in our barn. lots a bunch of week-old chicks a couple of weeks ago.

i moved all the chicks back into our basement but they are getting pretty cramped in a little recycling bin with a screen over it so i'd like to get them back out to the barn.

wondering at what point the chicks are not threatened by the rats.

(the big girls have been living out there with the rats for a while now with no problems -- other than the rats stealing their grain.)

thanks.

No advise, just wanted to commiserate! We've got a bad rat problem too. They haven't bothered our chicks, but I also don't want to let it get to that. Anyone, suggestions on the ridding of rats?
