Introducing the latest line of defense against the Tompkins Square Park rats

Not the guitar player!

After writing that stupid headline, I did a little research. We may be on to something here. From the Success With Poultry blog:

Rats are primarily nocturnal animals, so if you are regularly seeing them in the day, it probably means that you have a lot of them. They are not interested in your chickens as such, but they are interested in the food that your chickens are eating ... A rat might attack a chicken, but an angry chicken can be a mighty foe, and it is not unknown for chickens to kill (and eat) rats.

Life lesson for today: an angry chicken can be a mighty foe

That angry chicken is definitely up to no good. He's reading Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland. I like to see a literate chicken as much as the next person, but we'd be advised to keep an eye on this one.

LOL -- I'm so glad someone figured out what the chicken is reading! I was curious!
