Now I'm Extra Upset About Not Having A Camera!!!

Because of what stopped me in my tracks on the way back from letting the chickens out of their coop this afternoon. Something not much bigger than my now-chubby ducklings...


Something I smelled very strongly all around the coop yesterday...



I paused for a moment then took another route back to the house, by way of my in-law's yard...


I really did not want to walk through that jungle of a path this evening...









I caught another glimpse this evening on the way up to give my birds their evening "snack" of yogurt and fruit/veggie scraps collected today. Under an old mobile home/trailer thingy that's just past and on the other side of that vw in the previous post. Well, now we know where our family of skunks is living this year.

At least it's not under our house...

You poor thing. We're just dealing with possums and racoons. I'd die if I had to smell skunk all the time.
Although the little feller is a wee bit cute.

Heehee! The smell isn't really that bad! And I'd rather skunks than racoons because coons would kill all my chickens given half a chance! Although, it is a bit nerve-wracking walking by the little guy's lair every day ;-)

The baby I saw was even smaller than the one in the pic...super cute:)
