Yes, but she got some new girls and it's been suggested that they might have brought it in, despite being quarantined, and despite seeming completely well.

I went out there to shut the door to the little coop run because the girls had put themselves to bed only to see a little mouse face looking at me from underneath the coop.... sigh. It was a really cute little mouse. I don't want to kill it/them, but I'm not letting them share my girls' tucker. what to do?
