As I was passing by front of chicken coop today (I always use the back entrance because we never fixed the door on the front) I saw something out of corner of my eye. It was a dead possum - right in front of hen house. (I'm attaching a blurred pic so no one will say it was too graphic but also so you can see how close it got to the coop). At first I'm thinking maybe it's just playing possum but on closer inspection can see its guts hanging out. At first I think "Way to go Rex and Lucy - good job" which I guess still applies. But then I see something moving. It was a little baby - blind, hairless. There were three - one dead a little ways from the body and when I turned the body over there was one on its belly, not looking too good and covered in bugs and the one I saw moving, was trying to crawl in the mama's ear. I brought the two live ones inside and it just so happens I have chicks pipping so I had a heated brooder bin set up in bathroom. I put them under light and ran to answer phone. When I came back one was dead already but the other is still very much alive. WHAT DO I DO NOW? I couldn't just leave it outside to die and I can't kill it. It's blind, and tiny and it's mama is dead. Anyone ever hand raised baby mice or rats and know what to do? Do they even make bottles this tiny? I held it in my hand and tried to let it drink watered-down milk from my palm a drop at a time because it keeps making sucking sounds and motions. Irony of irony - I have a possum in my brooder box and my first chick just hatched.
