True, the wildlife place is more of a rehab place if you find babies that are too young to survive on their own.  They don't relocate.  
However, if you want to get chickens, you will need to build your coop so that it is opossum proof regardless.  Another family will eventually find your chickens.  
Each location that I have lived, I have had opossums show up to investigate.  I have a fenced in backyard and a dog and they will still find their way around the coop.
With all that said, I would suggest concentrating on making your coop a safe environment by using good wire with small holes (so animals can not reach paws through or tear it),  skirting so nothing can dig under and some kind of top so hawks cannot fly in or other critters crawl in.  

Good luck,
Tamara

The wildlife place won't do anything about it . I called them about a fox and they told me that there was nothing they can do about it and that they had to eat to. I set traps for they now only LIVE ANIMAL traps for them so I can take them some where else if you need me to come and catch them for you just let me know.

Hi,
I believe possums may bother chickens. I know of a person who could come and set a trap to take the possums away. We call her Farmer Mary, she has a little farm in Wake Forest. You can contact her through her website:
Good luck,
Alicja
