skunks as predators?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

  Are skunks interested in chickens as food? Or are they just looking for my chickens food?

  Spotted a baby skunk this morning REALLY close to where our 8 week old chicks are free ranging.

i hope not!!! i just witnessed a mom and six itty bitty babies run across the back of our property the other day. yikes.

i have a small flock of three black sex links, one ameraucana, one faverolle and four silkie mixes.

i have a small herd of one thoroughbred and one mustang.

i have a small pride of eight barn cats.

i have a small pack of one mutt and one black lab.

oh, farm life. <3

yes, skunks will kill and eat chicks and eggs but generally won't go after big hens and roosters.
