Will a skunk kill and eat a full grown chicken?
i havent seen it yet but i have seen them get into anything they can get away with
yes they can
they will usually just go after the eggs.. but if hungry enough chicken is on the menu
Skunks are weasel-related so yes but usually they kill one in the process of stealing eggs.
Yikes, makes me feel lucky to hear that skunks will eat a chicken. I recently caught 3 baby skunks whose mama made a den under my chicken coop. I knew skunks were eating eggs, I just didn't know at the time that they were living so close! I covered the hole the skunk had been using, hopefully with her babies gone (neighbor's dog killed the fourth one) she won't come back.
Yes they will.
