We need help figuring out what to do about the mouse infestation around our four coops. The coops are all built into our barn; three are in a stall on the outside wall of the barn, and one is the last "stall" in the line of inside stalls. There is another stall that we use to store the chicken feed that is adjacent to both chicken stalls. This whole area in the barn is overrun with mice! They don't get into the chicken feed because it is in a metal can, but they do live off of everything the chickens have (food, water, nesting under cages, tunneling through dirt floors, . . . ). We can't use poison because the chickens and the barn cat might be poisoned by eating the dead mice. We can't use traps because, if we put them anywhere that is accessable to us, the stupid chickens will most likely stick their heads in to get the bait. Besides that, there's also the fact that the barncat doesn't actually do his job and prefers to eat birds. I'm a little exaspirated by this; I don't want the mice to start bringing in any disease, not to mention the holes that they're digging in the floor. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!
