The Safest Place for a Mouse

Having barn cats seems to keep the mouse population at least in the barn. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about the chicken house. Apparently, the mice have deemed the chicken coop a safe haven, because there are always a few scampering around when I perform the weekly coop clean-out. I have to admit, they sure are cute!



I guess it better to have the mice than have a snake that steals the eggs! I'll never forget the time that I surprised a snake as he was swallowing an egg...went right back down in a little bitty hole that I had never noticed. A friend of mine came over and pulled it out of it's hiding place and took it home! LOL
