The chickens had visitors today!

Ted was able to push the opossum back under the fence (the same spot where it came in), and it played dead the entire time. He walked all the way back to the garage and got the snow shovel, and it still played dead. He put it in the snow shovel and carried it all the way to the pig pasture area and set it down there, and it still played dead. IT WAS NOT DEAD. We don’t kill them because opossums eat ticks like crazy, and we want them to eat as many ticks as possible. We do get them out of the chicken coop though so they don’t eat the eggs!

This opossum is NOT DEAD! It is just playing dead. Pretty convincing though, isn’t it?
