Skunk burrowed under the horizontal apron screens extending for two feet around one of my portable pens. I was alerted by the dogs, (being hounds, they were kenneled) went out and couldn't find anything, but I could smell him. Heard a squawk and heard a chicken handing out blows. When I looked in the pen I saw an asil hen in the center assuming a ready stance and a skunk that had obviously sprayed trying to figure out how to get out. One of her young, a pullet was up in the top of the pen and her young stag was down with his mom. I rescued the skunk from his predicament, (he won't be returning) and put everyone back on the roost pole. I guess that skunk picked the wrong pen of chickens to tunnel into. That hen probably won't weigh over 4 1/2 pounds, but she thinks she is a lot bigger. There are stories of asil killing cobras, we don't have any of those, but I might have to call her line the "skunk" line now.
