So its that time of year again where the mouse/rats come out. thankfully we dont have to worry about the big city NY rats (ew) but while i was picking the water up to change the chickens water there was a baby mouse underneath it burrowed. of course i screamed. my chickens were oblivious to him. he ran out anyway lol. my question is if they had seen the mouse dont you think that they would have pecked at it and even possibly killed it? PS. anyone eve use mint to deter rodents away? and how sucessful is it. There always going to be aroun but in the next few months there visit i want to reduce the times i see them in the coop. lol!
