Two nights ago an opossum got into the coop and killed two chickens. We heard the noise and went out and scared him off (and got a good look at him... so we know what it was). Do I have to worry about him coming back? I've sured up the coop really well. So well I'm not sure how or if I'll be able to let them out to free range for a while. - not until I have the time and money to put into making it open able and still secure. We also put a light out on the coop last night to deter night visitors. Why did it come in the first place? The girls are only 4 months old, not laying yet. And will it come back? And does it matter if it comes back if it can't get in? Some one had suggested that I put a live trap out for it.... I don't want to have to deal with that ugly thing! What would I do with it?! Not kill it?!
