Subject:Re: Mice in my Aviary
Message:Oh Kim Oh Kim I wish I had the most sensible answer for you, but I don't . Margaret or Anna and Boo Mght have the info you  want. I do know however that I dislike mice with a passion and if it were me I would send my darlings to a neighbor for a week or two and spread poison all over until I got the vermits killed. Too much worry about disease. As long as they are outside, or if I can set them free in a field that would be my first choice. Then my little angels wouldn't be coming back to the Aviary until I had every little piece of pioson cleaned up, and then I'd mop and scrub until I was blue in fingers and face. Then I'd make my little angels wait at least one to two weeks more before I felt they would be safe from the rodents and the poison.

However I have heard that peanut butter works wonders on mice in traps.
Ask Margaret or Anna and Boo. They seem very knowledable about birds in general.

wish you luck
