Last night we heard my chicks freaking out. They are in a covered and enclosed (and locked) patio on the side of our house in a cage. When we went out, there was an oppossum banging his head into the side of the cage trying to break through to get at the chicks! There is a small hole under some of the posts which must be how he got in. I want to go board up the holes but I am not positive that he actually left! We brought the girls into the bathroom for the night. I truly thought they would be safe in there, it is basically like having them in a garage, but I guess if they want in they will find a way! Poor girls were scared stiff.
