Nice!
One of my turkey babies got bitten by something yesterday and somehow she has made it through the night and today. Lucky baby because I saw a rat pop out and go to the waterer. DH sat and shot it (pregnant female) but I saw a male so more to go. Amazing that you no longer have to go to the dump to shoot rats!

It wasn't a snapdragon bite was it? I hear they go after young poultry all the time. And some times carry rabies. You want to watch out for them. A bite from one of them can be nearly a serious as a bite from a dogwood.
