It appears that there is a mouse living WITH my chickens! There are mouse droppings on a ledge inside the coop....right next to where the chickens sleep. Every night when I go out to check on my chickens a mouse jumps down off the perch, the same perch where the chickens are sleeping, and runs outside into the darkness. They have a portable coop and I have lifted it up and can see the tunnels the mouse is living in the ground. I have tried putting out traps as well as flooding the mouse's tunnels with the hose but he keeps coming back. Not once have I caught a mouse in any of the traps! And it amazes me that the chickens don't try and get the mouse every night. I keep their food stored in sealed containers in another area of the yard and those don't seem to be attracting any pests. I know it's crazy to think there is only one mouse (when there is one there are usually many) but it really seems like this one mouse is living in harmony with my chickens. I need help trying to find a way to get rid of this mouse because I really don't want to end up with a gross infestation.
