A few nights ago, I found one of my chickens decapitated and drug up under the building partway. I couldn't find the head anywhere. Then yesterday when I went in the coop to feed the chickens, there was another decapitated one in there with feathers from another one all over the place. The 2nd dead one had been ripped open on one side. I never did find the heads. We have skunks BAD. We've already trapped 3. They haven't worried me too much cause they were only eating the eggs and digging up our yard for grubs. Last night I had the chickens closed up pretty tight and we woke up at 4am with our dogs going nuts and the entire house smelling like skunk, so I don't know if they sprayed the neighbors dog or if they got ticked off cause they couldn't get in the coop. The skunks live up under our coop. We've buried fencing about 2 feet underground and they just dig deeper and come out the other side. I got my camera today, stuck it up under the coop and started snapping pics. The dirt is all dug up around the sides and what looks like a small den in the center. I tried sticking poles into the hole, but they didn't go far and nothing came out. Nothing has touched the eggs left out for a long time. That's why I don't think it's a skunk. There are also foxes all over, but I don't see an area big enough that a fox could have gotten in the coop. We are setting up a deer cam tonight. I'm going to aim it towards the door of the coop. I still don't know if I'm going to take the chance of leaving the trap door open to the coop (we always used to) or close them up. I'm just wondering if any of you have ever had success catching predators on a deer cam.
