So I wanted to get out to the chicken coop before the friendly skunks come out for their evening prowl. These skunks are like kitties... seriously. they just walk around us as we're out there etc... whacky skunks! Last week they were in our trash can, one went in through a hole in the trash can and then couldn't get out and was squeaking up a storm. DH had to get it out, LOL! So tonight I go out a little too late and there is the stupid skunk in front of me... so I try and shoo it away and it walks more toward the coop! GRR! So then I remember that I just put food in the coop for the chickens... and watch the skunk go around to the chicken door. I see the chickens looking down making a fuss. Greaaaat, now the skunk is IN the coop! So DS hears me say that and starts flipping out... I'm sad!!!!!!!! The skunk is going to eat my Rhubarb!!!!!!!!! I go put DS to bed and DH goes out to try and get the skunk out. he had to go in the coop (4x4ft) space... and he figured if he took the pan of food out then the skunk would follow. Oh no. the skunk just kept sniffing around! so DH gets the shovel and tries to fish out the skunk LOL! but it was useless because the skunk was afraid of DH... finally he got the skunk out. meanwhile it begins to pour... Dh could have pet the skunk, the skunk was eating the food and DH took the food pan from the skunk, LOL! Good thing our skunks are ultra friendly because for sure DH would have been sprayed in that scenario. But this skunk could care less! I guess I really need to get out there before skunk time, I really tried!
