    My trap stays set everyday....365 days a year....only caught one oppossum in the past year, but that's one less that gets a free meal in my coop

    My goal was the raccoon but the oppossum and his/her sibling have been caught stealing food. [​IMG]

    Thanks for not "relocating" (dumping your problem off on someone else).

    I'm so new to chickens I had to squint and speculate as to what the critter was, but I still do thank you for making one less I have to worry about.

    It beats bagging up a whole coop full of dead birds. That's the part I least like.

    So, question....does the oppossum eat the feed that gets thrown around or does it kill? I have chickens and ducks. My chickens are locked up tight but my ducks not so much.
