We were just outside clipping the wings of a few of our flighty chickens and our now mature ducks (ducks were NOT happy about it) and on the way back inside I heard some very loud rustling in the grass. Very odd for this time of night, and usually if it is a coon they freeze when they hear us coming. Well, when I put the flashlight over I saw 3 very bushy black / white tails in the air. Thankfully they were just doing housekeeping and not getting ready to spray. It looked like a mother and 3 kids. Mom was pulling weeds / grass under our shed where I'm assuming she's trying to make a den. Fortunately we've never had a problem with skunks and our chickens, so were it not for their stinkiness so close to the house I'd be inclined to let them be. Of course, I'm also not inclined to want to mess with them so maybe I'll still let them be.
