I think a skunk is trying to get into my chicken coop. We had some wire ripped off a bottom corner of our run the other night. We fixed and reinforced it. Every morning, around 2AM-4Am we smell a super strong odor of skunk. This has only happened this consistently since we got our chickens. Will skunks kill our chickens or try to get the eggs? Our coop is fairly predator proof but something pulled the wire off and every morning the roost in the run is knocked down. Are skunks hunters or scavengers? I wonder if they would kill and eat my chicks. I am not trapping the sucker, do not want sprayed. Not sure how to get rid of him, too close to neighbors to shoot, so I was wondering if they are a threat or not. We have oppossums and coons too, but I smell skunk strongest in the area of my coop every morning. Anyone know if skunks are a danger to chickens? Thanks for any help!
