I went out to check on my chickens and opened the door and about 10 mice scurried up the walls and down a hole in the floor. I made my coop out of recycled pallets and it has several access points that mice can get into and I confirmed my suspicions tonight...I guess I have to go buy a roll of hardware cloth and fix this problem. The mice when I saw them were in the feeder suspended from the cieling eating and they scurried up the rope! Ugh!! My main concern is health problems with the chickens? Will they inadvertenly eat mice poop and get sick? Will it get us sick if we eat the eggs? Gimme some ideas/help on how to stop these darn mice!
