Well we lost another chicken earlier (one of our meat birds). Havent had an attack in QUITE a while.. They free range and I was a little late getting them tucked in and something got to them. I got the rest of them cooped up and set my trap. My dog Dennis and I just went out to check it. Pup found a opossum snooping around the coop and it proceeded to "play opossum". I had Dennis stand guard and went to get my trusty shovel and popped him on the head a couple times, then threw his ugly mug in the creek for a nice middnight swim. Let this be a lesson to the rest of you mangy critters picking on my chickens. HA!!
