My wife just gave me a yell. She was sitting in the front porch swing reading and heard a noise. She looked down to find a possum staring at her. He had climbed about 10 steps to get up on our porch. About the same time, our dog who was inside looking through the storm door saw it and barked. It promptly fled. I've set my squirrel trap with a can of cat food. My question: Should I put it in the front yard where she saw the possum or closer to my chicks? Right now I have it about half way in between. This has never happened before, although last fall something killed three of my RIRs. I've reinforced the coop with hardware cloth and my new chicks have been out about 2 weeks. HELP! I don't want to lose these chickens.
