I went out to water and feed and let out the girls and something ran up the wire to the roof of my chicken run. I thought it was a huge rat (heebie jeebies), but turned out it was a small possum. it played possum up there and I called DH. He asked me, do you want me to kill it? HECK YEA! This is a future predator in our yard! He got his pellet gun and it was dead in less than a minute. HA!
