    Found a mouse today inside my chicken tractor. I scared it away before closing the coop door for the night. Should I be more concerned about a potential mouse problem? Or is it no big deal? Thanks in advance for any comments.

    Chickens mice go together. Your mileage may vary, but we deal with mice year round. Always fighting the fight to to slow the herd.

    Mice can pack away a lot of food.


    And I have one coop, where the mice actually snip the ends off my rooster's tail. I found the feathers lining a mouse nest [​IMG]
