Kindergarten at the farm - feeding chickens and a dead rat

When we in the chicken area feeding chickens the children came across a dead rat. There was much discussion about how it might have died, including a cat might have got it!
Cats aren't allowed on our farm as they are predatory around birds and the farm has all sorts of very precious species, including dotterels and godwits.

We just love the provocations for learning experiences like this provide at the farm. Language, science, relationships, biology, ecology and dealing with death all come up when we find dead animals.
