    Caught these all in the past 2 weeks after finding four chicks remains and empty egg shells and a pile of feathers that once was one of my best layers.

    I caught another possum last night. I have lost count on everything I caught in my $45 trap this summer.

    It's pretty sad how much everyone is rooting and condoning killing an animal that's just doing what comes natural to it. Perhaps you should spend more energy on securing your runs/coops versus trapping and killing animals.

    You love your chickens so much, but have such little value for other living creatures?? Kind of hypocritical, no?
