Well this morning checked on aviary as normal topped up food water etc, and see a little black mouse sniffing round the back of the aviary...

It scarpered one it see me, buti checked for mouse holes nevertheless...

Mice have always been a problem, they breed in the garden next door who keep poultry (chickens etc), and often jump over the back door step into the house, after getting rid of them numerous times, they keep coming back.

I luckily have defences which unwillingly help me out.

1) Neighbourhood cats:-

As soon as the aviary was up, neibourhood cats have been seen laying on top of the aviary and watching the birds...

None of them harm the birds, and the kakarikis find it most enjoyable to wind the felines up by perching just out of there reach..

The cats cant get to the birds, so catch mice instead...

Theres still many mice, butthe cats seem to be keeping them under control...

2) Dog:

My dog likes laying outside which keeps mice away from aviary... for some reason they seem not to get close when the dogs around.

3) Kakariki

Kiwi, my green cock kakariki is very boisterous, and ive seen him attack the mice through wire if they start sniffing around...

Quite funny to watch..

Im hoping to get quail as ive heard they will help attack mice and keep aviart clean...
