In the Brooder
- May 31, 2010
I live in San Diego and currently don't own any chickens but am looking to start in a week or two. Reading up on the loses that some people are having scares me. I have seen skunks and possums in my yard and am considering getting a trap. I have a few questions. Which trap should I buy (or build)? Do I put the trap near the coop or anywhere in the yard? What happens if I trap a skunk? What do I do to avoid getting spray by the skunk? Do I need to worry about skunk and possum if I let my chicken free range during the day in the yard?
