    Rats the nasty lil blighters

    Got a bit of a rat problem going on,living in the sticks and keeping chickens and water fowl dont help but try keeping feed to a minimum so as the rats dont have too much of a meal if any

    My problem is i need to get rid of these ruddy rats but how? i cant really put poison down as i have 25 free ranging chickens and ducks whom im sure would taste it :o(

    There's traps but again with youngsters about and the animals im worried what could happen

    Anyone got any other ideas? dont say a gun i cant even throw a ball in a straight line yet alone try and hit a target lol

    Where there is cheese there are rats,
    Where there are rats there are cats,
    Where ever there are cats there are dogs,
    If you got the dogs you got bitches,
    Bitches always out to put their paws on your riches.

    lol funnily enough the rats were daft enough to dig into the hawks aviary so he had a few to munch on too:-D

    u must amass an army of cats to crush the rodent scum

    About two Trebuchets should do the trick.

    Get a rodent bait box from B&Q - the poison goes inside the protected enclosure so that your other animals don't have access.
