    A skunk killed my broody hen and distroyed the nest.
    In two more days they would have hatched.

    How do I deal with a skunk? I would like to poison it.

    Found this link for you...

    We have them here but have been fortunate and haven't had to deal with them...our landlady has a farm behind our "Mini" and she constantly battles them. Our coops/run are secure with Australian shepherd back-up.

    The landlady uses live traps and a shotgun...I have two handguns but don't plan on getting that close. [​IMG]

    Animal Control may help you. When I was a kid my mother called them often. They'd come out, find the den and set out poisoned eggs.
