Late this afternoon I saw a skunk next to the pen/hut where we have our broody hen and her chick. The skunk had its hand through the wire mesh--the chickens were in the hut so no harm done. The skunk slinked off when we came out the front door and went into tall grass. Since then I have brought the mom and chick into the mudroom for the night.
Questions: Do skunks prey on chickens? This one was certainly interested. What can we do to get rid of the skunk?
