OK...I have some mice in the garage and they have moved their way to the chicken coop. The feed is stored in a steel trash bin, so they only food they are getting is what has been spilled from the hanging feeder, and trust me, my birds don't leave much. They have chewed a number of holes around the bottom of the shed/coop and I think they go in at night for shelter in the straw bedding more than anything. I only see them when I check in on the birds at night, and they run for a hole and off they go! My cats manage to get a few here and there and just leave them dead in the yard, but I would like to reduce their numbers a bit more. Here is my quandry...If I put out poison, I'm afraid the mice, sickly from the poison would wander into the coop during daylight hours and hence be lunch for my hens who would in turn get sick. I can't position traps around the coop as my beagle would end up with a broken foot from constantly nosing around the base of the coop for lefterover "chicken lickin's" as we call their droppings for the dogs....eewwww! Anyway...suggestions?
