Last week I went out to the coop to shut the door- and to my surprise there sat an oppossum! The first time in 10 years for me to see one on our property. But not the last, we relocated him only to find another one the next night. My husband was going to kill him. He instructed me to lay the net down so he could smash him. I had my doubts that my husband was still that quick, but I followed orders. Well, my husband's next remark was "Wow, those things are fast!" He can't help it he was raised in the city. Anyway, we caught 2 in there the next evening and one was terminated on sight and the other managed to get away. I wasn't too worried, I thought they only ate eggs. However, my son got a book from the library that has a picture of a oppossum eating a chicken..... Have any of you had problems with oppossums? By the way, the one who narrowly escaped has not returned. I have started closing the door earlier. If the door is shut, nothing gets in.
