Blossom vs. the possum

A possum proved that our chicken run was not completely varmint-proof the other night. I went out on Monday afternoon to find a possum "playing dead". We found a board that was broken off at the bottom of the wooden fence. Apparently, the possum slipped through that hole and squeezed under the chicken wire where I had been meaning to buy more stakes to keep it down. Once inside, he couldn't get back out.
Poor Blossom must have gotten into a tussle with it! She was missing lots of feathers that day and has lost more since then. Luckily, fall is mild in South Texas!

She doesn't act as though anything is amiss!

I'm pretty sure it is more drafty than usual for her!
Y'all Come Back!


  1. Oh Poor Blossum! That's horrible. He did a good job undressing her. I am surprised she won!!

    I hope that possum is now in the big possum bone yard in the sky!!!

  2. Oh Lorilee! I cannot believe how that poor Blossom looks! She's a walking miracle; and I had a good laugh, even though it brought back memories of my 8 Guineas being gourmet lunch for some coyotes. Life in the country is a hoot!

    Take care and God Bless.

  3. Oh poor Blossom is in a pickle. Hope she is ok.

  4. Poor thing! We've had a possum in our garage. Made some hissing noises and then took off like a shot when the garage door was opened. Mimi

  5. Awwwwww! Poor Blossom!

    (((that last picture had me howling though!!! Too funny!)))

  7. Awwww! Poor little Blossom! But please don't tell her, Lorilee- I had to chuckle over the last picture! It looks like she is wearing bloomers! (LOL)
