My husband let the dogs out this morning and checked on my chickens and found a stupid possum in our big girls run! Thankfully our three ladies were up on their roost and the possum was on the ground by their little house that they never actually use. The possum had a very bad morning. I am so glad it was him instead of me that went out there to check on them because being ex-military and ex-law enforcement he is good with a gun. He has showed me how, but I have never actually had to shoot anything. Last night was the first night that I didn't personally go out to do the evening chores for my chickies. I was so busy my 10 year old daughter said she would go out and do it. I almost didn't let her but she knows what to do and I thought it would be ok. We use a dog kennel as our run and there is a big gap around the door so we have a two pieces of metal roofing that we put against the two doors and use bungee cords so that all the gaps are covered. He said that the metal was against the door but the bottom was not flat, it was bowed out. I am so glad that this didn't cost any of our girls their lives. You can guess who will be doing evening chores from now on!
