    Thief In the Night
    (Or Daylight?)
    Some low-down varmint has been getting in the girls’ (Anita and Blackie Chicken) pen and stealing their eggs. (We say “low-down,” because it has to go through the wire surrounding fence and gate to get to them.)
    Mr. O. (“O” for ornery) Possum is the most likely candidate, but they are usually known to be nocturnal critters, we thought. However, I remember during a lot of ice and snow one winter, a very big, fat possum came up to our ground-level bird feeder to eat scraps in broad daylight.
