    O.K. Winter has hit and we are battling mice. We have started seeing mouse poo in the chicken food. That's not good, is it? SOMEWHERE in all these MILLIONS of posts I saw a post about someone who made a bucket to drown mice in!!
    Can anyone direct me with a link or re-tell how they done it? THANKS SO MUCH!

    (*I posted this in the feeding forum but got no comments, maybe someone here can better help me!)
