I put peppermint OIL in coop to deter wasps and mice. It smells really strong and the chickens don't mind. Jury is still out on the mice, but the wasps leave.

I avoid strong smelling oils in the coop, because chicken lungs are actually small and not great at handling strong oils.
And I doubt that the mice care, one way or another.
