Of Angels and Plants

The adventures of gardening

My New Mouse-Catching Team August 2, 2010

We have had some mice that have been appearing in the yard and around the house. Yesterday, my parents were astounded to find one of our Rhode Island Red chickens with a mouse dangling from her beak. Today, another mouse appeared. I caught it, called the chickens over, and released the mouse. After a short run of a yard, Tomoyo, my Black Sex Link, killed it with a bite to the neck. The rest of the ladies then went crazy and started chasing her. Tomoyo was running and holding the mouse in her beak like a cat carrying a kitten. The mouse was later dropped somewhere, but not before Tomoyo got some bites out of it.

And I have some pictures.

For those with a sensitive stomach, here is a picture of my dear Angel. Don’t go any further than that.

Isn’t she cute?

You sure you want to see these?

Really sure?

Ok. I apologize in advance for the blurriness in some photos.

Tomoyo running away with her prize

Running. “It’s mine!”
“It might need some barbeque sauce.”
