I was watching my flock today when I heard a squeak from inside the coop. Suddenly one of my hens ran out with a full grown mouse clutched in her beak. I watched as she ran past all the other hens to a secluded spot where she swallowed the mouse whole. Has anyone ever seen or heard of this? I was amazed. I never thought of hens as mouse eaters.
