Got a buddy has had eight chickens killed in two nights. Some have heads pinched off, one has had the breast eaten, and one had tail feathers pulled out, but most just looked to be killed and untouched. After consulting google and another friend a mink has been put at the top of the list of suspects. I have had no experience with mink, but when I look up anything on them 90% of what I find are water “blind sets” or pockets. What do you guys recommend I try? I wanna know baits, traps, types of sets, any and everything you guys can tell me. This guy really wants/needs this to stop sooner than later. Thanks in advance!

I'd figure out how it was getting in and trap there. Seems like the chickens are a good bait.

Raccoons are very famous for this also.. Both can be caught in cage traps..

I have caught mink in cage traps with a nest of golf balls and mink lure in the back of the cage.


once you go trap, you never come back

It sure sounds like mink. At times they seem to kill chickens just for enjoyment. We have taken many with 110's in blind sets around the coop, but others have had good success with cage traps and fresh bait and some lure.
