I dealt with this last week.  Swarm of them came in and started hitting the bird feeders.

This is why humans are such good friends with chickens.

Nature taught them two valuable things:
- When times are good, lay eggs and grow the population.
- When times are bad, starve to death waiting for times to be good again

I like domestic rats, wouldn't want to be anywhere near them in the bad times, though, they only follow most of rule one.

Glad I just refilled my ratties' bowl.  Think it's time to hand out some banana chips.

/rats are horrible
//used to know someone who owned a diseased-looking pet rat
///she would drop it down the front of her shirt and you could see it run around and around through her breasts and fat rolls under the fabric
/\/it was disgusting and I stopped associating with that social group

Neighbor had a big pet wild rat they raised from a pup.  Supposedly they aren't tame like the domesticated ones, this guy just seemed to have cranked up alertness and playfulness and curiosity.
