So, yesterday I found a skunk in our compost pile when I went to take out our food scraps. Turns out he was living under our new chicken coop. My hubby was able to get him out and disposed of him quickly. My 3 year old was talking on the phone this morning with my Mom and she told her "My Daddy killed the skunk with a gun." I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing that she's already starting to understand the circle of life. Hubby went and nailed down boards at the base of our shed which will hopefully prevent any other creatures from getting underneath. There was already a board on the chicken side but not the other three sides. The skunk incident was a huge wake-up call for hubby and he even ordered an automatic door so the chickens will automatically be locked up at night.
