I heard the silkies making noise about 15 minutes ago, I go outside and they are freaking out. Then as I approach I see a possum's ugly snout sticking out of the house door. I grabbed a square nose shovel, trapped his head on the ground for a while, picked him up with the shovel, threw him in the yard and brained him. If I could have, I would have brought him back, and brained him again. All silkies are accounted for, I found him before he could kill them, but there are feathers everywhere. stupid possum. I think I'll go hit him again. I just thank the Lord I was up. I almost went to bed about 30 minutes ago.
