Today was my weekly (by-weekly if I am lazy) cleaning of the coop. I take everything out and put in new bedding, rake everything, put down DE, clean and fill feeders and waterers. Well I lifted up the feeder and there was a huge hole under it. I looked in side of the feeder and sure enough there were mice poos in the food!!!!! After further investigation I saw were there tunnel went, right under my shed. The coop is up against my shed. I was thinking that my chickens were going threw food like crazy, almost 40 lbs in less then two week for only 7 chickens. Now I know why. My cat and the neighbors cat have been going under the shed alot so I am hoping that they are mice hunting. That is the first time I have seen any traces of mice them in about 5 years. So now to figure out what to do. I don't want the cats to get caught in a snap trap and putting out poison is out of the question. Now I guess just have to try and figure out what to do. I mice!!!
