I had the chicklets in the upper level of my garage but the heat has become unbearable and I was forced to put them into a temporary covered run outside of our bedroom window. It is a welded wire run with hardware cloth around the bottom with 4 strands of electric fencing around the perimeter. Something will take a good zap if it tries to get into the run. Even with the precautions I've had a rifle with mounted flashlight readily available at the first sign of trouble. Sleeping lightly while waiting for any sounds of distress has also made for a few tired days at work. Well this morning around 2:30 or so we had a skunk visit us. It has happened before but not since I've had the chicklets out in the open. I looked out briefly to see 5 WLs and 5 SSs dozing on their roost without a care on the world. And no skunk to be seen. Just smelled. Anyone ever have any problems with skunks?
