    DH went out to lock the Large birds in for the nite and he saw a young Possum trying to get in the inclosed pens. I noticed this morning that i was missing four silkie chicks and a egg was eaten. By the time he got his gun the thing was in the silkie pen. Has managed to crawl through. He shot it. My concern with it being young is if there are more. I think I will set a trap tomorrow nite.
