In the Brooder
- Aug 25, 2011
I found a hole outside of my chicken coop the other morning, with a perfect footprint. I thought it might be a raccoon but after reading a little about behaviors I'm thinking its a skunk and we have a ton of them here so I wouldnt be surprised. My coop is quite secure and built off of the ground but I am worried about my new broody who I've moved to an existing structure with no real bottom (four posts and plywood with a swinging door). I'm sure a skunk could dig his way underneath, so I'm wondering if any of you have suggestions for a good barrier? I thought I'd bury 2 x 4's or 2 x 6's all the way around.
