That is one thing bad about my GP's, they won't catch mice or rats. They think that anything living here needs protected, and they keep my two barn cats from catching mice. Most people don't like using the old style, spring mouse traps, but they work. That is they work if you can bait the trigger so that you are not using it as a "mouse feeding station". I give the mice I catch to my chickens and guineas. I have a Turken rooster that is always first in line, when he sees me coming with a mouse. They need to come up with a breed of chickens that are nocturnal, so that they can get the mice at night.😂
Ralph that might be an advantage. My GPs hear them in the ground and dig them up. Result lots of holes in the yard.
I like finding the little pinkies in the mice nests. They are like chicken crack to any of the birds. They'll run with the big ones but gobble the little ones down before anyone else can grab it.
Love this comment. I'm still laughing.
