By George!!!!

I think I've got it!!!! I'm trying out new ways of getting my pictures on here. I never have my camera with me whenever something interesting happens to me. But, I ALWAYS have my cell phone. So, I've been trying different things and I think I've got it! They are not the best pictures, but they get the idea across. So, now onto this picture.

This picture was taken last night. IN MY HEN HOUSE!! If you look closely, you will see a chicken up in the top, right corner looking down at it. It was right under where they roost! I did end up killing it with a hatchet handle. (I'm ruff and tuff that way. lol) I picked it up to get it out of the hen house and how did my lovely hens repay me? By pooping on my back whenever I bent down to pick it up. Yep, you heard right. I got pooped on by one of my hens. Not to be gross but, it wasn't the nice "solid" poop that you sometimes get from caged chickens. OOOOOHHHHH NOOOOOO. It was the semi runny poop that you sometimes get from free range chickens. Where did it poop? The one inch of bare skin that was showing on my back when my shirt moved up as I bent over to pick up the possum, of course.  Eeeewwwww! I about puked.

Anyway, everything is back in order around the chicken house, and so far no more problems. I sooooo need to get another dog.

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, possum killer.

I love chickens, but with chickens comes tons of chicken poop! Glad everything is good in the hen house!

Oh, goodness! Looks like a young possum, poor guy. But he definitely was somewhere he shouldn't have been!

Just have to say: you can kill a possum practically with your bare hands, but chicken poo makes you want to puke? LOL, love it. I've got some possums you can take care of if you're ever anywhere near southwest Michigan. :)

Some thanks from your girls! Figures that it would fall on the one small piece of exposed skin! At least the opossum is gone. Hope all the other non-chicken critters stay out of the hen house!!

My hubby killed one a couple of months ago with a shovel. Our chickens were terrified. But they didn't poop on us LOL.
