Not happy about this find today! A huge hole in the chicken run coming from under the coop. .. and p**p in the coop! Consulted the Goodles (o)possum, maybe! Thankfully no signs of struggle.
Spent the afternoon locking it down further and installed motion lights. Made a hot pepper concoction with vinegar that I will pour near the coop to hopefully deter the “ critter”. What else can I try?

Processing day! Our 10 month old IPP feeders hang weights were 201 lbs and 160 lbs. 👍🐽👍🐽
