I let my pullets free range during the day, then i lock them up at dusk. I lost track of time last night, and forgot to close the door. A short while later, my dog started going crazy and ran outside. I followed, and watched a skunk run out of my coop with an EE in it's mouth. My dog was ready to attack, so the skunk sprayed her...and my cat (who thinks she is a chicken guard). The other five babies were asleep on their roost, completely undisturbed. There were a lot of feathers but no blood. I knew skunks liked chicken eggs, but my babies aren't laying yet (22 weeks!). I never thought they would actually take a whole chicken...I feel terrible. Is this common? Do you think it would be advisable to call animal control and trap the skunk? This is the second time my dog has been sprayed in the last 2 months.
