    This past winter we have had issues with mice. Does anyone have any ideas for a rodent free storage cabinet? To keep feed (in cans), medicines, and other things in without a worry about mice.

    I use old fashion metal trunks and bins in the garden ..keep feed, bedding etc all in separate bins & trunks, they look quite nice stacked together, easy to carry, I can leave them outside all year round & they aren’t too expensive! :thumbsup

    Metal garbage cans for feed....I keep snap traps set constantly, haven't seen too many mice last fall or this spring yet.

    We have locking plastic bins that I fill with feed - and we also put out sticky traps in the shed and underneath areas where mice are likely to hide and the chickens can’t get too - obviously it goes without saying that it’s super important to sweep up at night
