This is part of an email I got from my sister today. Any suggestions?

One of our hens roosting on the porch last night was killed by something we think--from the tracks--was a mink. We found the hen near the bottom of the steps this morning with its head bitten off Is there any way to repel them?


Right now Im having amnesia and dj vu at the same time. I think Ive forgotten this before.

Best repellant that I have found is a foothold or 110 conibear.

I don't know about the rest of the nation but I'll tell you what an old timer told me. Take your fastest otter and your slowest mink and then bet on the mink!

Ok, I'll call my local "hire an otter". Thanks. I kinda wondered too, if it was really a mink. The "mink tracks" could be from a cat.... which is probably what I would catch if I set a mink sized cage trap.

If moth balls repel moths, then mink balls should repel minks

Last I heard they took the chickens off the porch and put them in the barn for the night. I guess chickens aren't smart enough to perch up high like guineas.

No problem! Since this happened 8 years ago, it's nice to know the culprit died of old age by now!
