That time of year again, when the mice start invading everything. This year is particularly bad, the cats in the house caught 10 to my knowledge in less than a week, I can't even begin to count how many I've seen the dogs eating or how many I've caught in the garage with pinkies that I've actually fed to the chickens. I've given the girls so many now that I'm being mobbed at the run door every time I go out there. And tonight I found them in the feeder when I went to check on the birds. I have a hanging galvanized type feeder that hangs in the middle of the run away from everything but only about 9 inches from the ground (I have a petite silkie that can't reach higher at the moment). When I turned the flashlight on it tonight off flew about 6 or 8 mice. Normally a few mice would just irk me but there are so many this year! Is there anything I can do aside from building or buying a treadle style feeder? (About to make a cross country move, funds are far shorter than we can afford, would like to make it there before getting one) Is anyone else having an invasion of the meeces?
