The last couple nights we had spotted a baby possum just outside the house. Today, there it was, napping in the trash not 8 feet from a brooder full of chicklets and juveniles. It must have climbed up the construction fencing that was leaning against the can and couldnt get back out. When we found it, it was curled up and sound asleep. I suggested that we just put a hose in the can and give it swimming lessons, but DD (the spider rescuer) won out, so she has driven it off to find it a new home. Im setting the trap now, cuz where there is one baby..... there are plenty more and soon they'll be big enough to kill my chickens and ducks. This one is tiny but the last couple that I trapped were the size of a cat. Now, where's that bag of marshmallows..... Chel Im a little embarrassed by how filthy that trash can is LOL. That is the one we keep next to the outside sink on the patio. We toss broken eggs in there and dump out dirty feeders from the brooder and cage trays, etc.
