Re: Help puppy blues

Re: Mice control

I've heard that you can catch them with a five gallon pail that has the bottom covered with whole flax seed, and some kind of bait if you want.

Re: Red leakage

So if I can't see the leakage, does that mean the chicken doesn't have it? If I breed my blue rooster (3 1/2 years old) that doesn't have leakage, to the new hens (not showing any leakage yet) from the same group as the cockerels that are showing leakage, would I get any offspring with leakage?
