    I was fixing up my nesting boxes yesterday when out ran a mouse. It was hiding in the bottom of my nests. Will it pose any threat to my hens when they get in there to lay?

    I'm going to put Stormy on to it. She'll take out a mouse no problem.[​IMG]

    More than likely, the chickens will spot the mouse, sooner or later, and they will eat it. Mine have eaten a few.

    Mice are disease varmints and need to be removed as soon as possible. Where there is one, there are always more. They will put the health of your birds at risk.
