Re: We live with skunks
I don't have much time right now, just quickly want to share what I know.
Opossums do not hunt. While they probably will get into a chicken nest, they will not kill a chicken, only eat the eggs.
Skunks occasionally will kill a chicken AND have the eggs too. It's not the most common thing, since skunks really don't like to climb fences.
So if you ask me, neither of the 2 killed that chicken. Most likely it was a dog or a coon, fox, coyote, bird of prey, etc...or it died of natural causes and another animal ate the head after it died.
