    Nothing other than I don't think it's a good idea to put a mouse trap in a bird cage.

    Can you hang the birdcage from the ceiling?

    You have to look at the cage and figure out how they are getting in. Then, think like a mouse.

    Is the cage on a table, or on a stand.

    Hmmmm. I think that your best option would be to hang the cage on something so that the mice wouldn't be able to get in. I hope that the mice go away soon for 'ya.
