    We have been visited by a skunk...I can tell from the perfume...LOL It has not bothered the chickens or the coop but is there something I can do to steer him away. I have heard of ammonia and moth ball that will steer certain animals away and wondered if something might work on a skunk. But then again if they can stand there own perfume these other smells might not even bother them.

    Thanks for the reply. Haven't 'smelled' the guy all weekend so hopefully he has moved on.
