I found a live opossum all cuddled up in my hens' egg box last night along with mess of broken eggs. One of my four hens might be missing a toe and was terrified to move into the coop, We finally got the opossum out of the box by pulling the bottom out of the egg box. we have noticed a real drop in eggs over the last two months so these visits may not be new. I think I know where the booger is getting in, but the area will be rough to work on until the snow is gone and I can get to it better. Other than a live trap or possibly a snare which may not be a good idea with a dog about the same size as the possum, what can I use? I could shoot it, but am not really into that. I bought a new latch for the egg box, but I don't really think that is the problem. I also bought some animal repellent to spray about. Any other ideas? How about the fake owls?
