Last night at around midnight I noticed our girls making an awful lot of noise. Oddly enough thought it was frantic or alarming, it actually sounded like their egg songs. I had DH go out and check anyway and they were running in circles. We've been letting them out in the run during the night lately, but they usually just roost at night anyway. It's more so that they don't to wait for me to open the coop in the morning. So he got them into the coop and closed them in for the night. Then he started looking around and in the tree that hangs just over the run was a gigantic opossum. I've lived in the country my whole life and this is the biggest opossum I've ever seen. Anyway, our run is completely enclosed so I'm not sure what he was up to, other than potentially grabbing one through the fence (which he's not gonna be able to do anymore because we will be locking the girls up from now on). By the time we came back out with the appropriate eviction notice... he was gone. We are working on getting some traps together for tonight... what's the best bait? We will also be pruning the tree back a little bit.
