Well, goodness me, this morning I went out to feed my flock some scratch grains as I do this everyday, when lo and behold in their water bucket was a baby possum swimming!!! The hens had picked all the hair off the possum. My dear husband pushed the thing down into the water and drowned it. We buried it in the garden. This is our second possum. The first was found in the hen house under their feed trough. Have no idea how they are getting into the hen house and the chicken run???? I never dreamed I would see these critters that close.
