As it gets closer to winter, field mice and rats will start looking for a nice, safe, warm place to bed down. What better spot than a cozy corner of your chicken coop?
Nice clean bedding, safe at night from predators and also a ready food source, especially if you leave feed in the coop.
1) Block any possible entry points into the coop – Mice and rats (as well as snakes and weasels) can get through a hole as small as one inch. Securely cover all the windows, vents and other openings in your coop with 1/2″ hardware cloth to prevent unauthorized entry.
