Well I have two chickens in a pen by my front door and they were just sprayed by a skunk. They don't appear to be feeling well, but then the smell is making ME pretty sick also . Will they be ok? I feel so bad for them. I tried to shoot the thing but it kept running/charging at me...never had one do that. They usually run away. This one was a crazy loon, scared me so much I couldn't get a good aim at him, had to keep back pedalling. Maybe he was rabid? Got rid of my chicken killing dog and now have possums and skunks running amok again. Oh, well. At least no more chickens were killed.
