Will the pipe idea work for mice too. I've got a lot of native mice. They're really tiny.
yep, it definitely will. They're too little to take the block out, so they will eat it in there.

So still cover half of the open end as they(rodents) like to eat in cognito

I have the PVC pipe and I think its 32mm with one end blocked the block jams in the pipe so they can't take it away

How far away should you put the bait in the pipe away from the coop?

If the chooks per chance ate the Talon baited mice and or rats would they have secondary poison and die?

Its at the back of the coops. The chooks can't eat it as its down inside the pipe and as for the dead mice I have never seen them eat dead ones only live ones and its never killed a chook yet
