Well, went out early this morning to check on the ruckus going on and at first didn't see anything and all chickens were ok.. so went to get the feed for them and when I came back saw a skunk running behind a pallet in the coop to hide from me... So, there's the reason for the ruckus, but am wondering if it is in there to just eat the feed or if skunks will actually kill chickens. It seems to me to be a baby skunk. Hoping it will mosey on out of there... and yes, I usually do lock up the coop up at night but forgot last night. so, skunks.... harmful to chickens or just going to eat the feed.?????
