Are you sure they are mink and not feral ferrets? I supposr you are near to a watercourse.
 I take it you have seen the beast.
Trap or shoot may be the only way to go.
They are voracious predators
Good luck with them.
Now retired from the day job and working hard on my smallholding.

Maybe invest in additional traps? One trap = only one mink.

There are some on eBay, awesome things which destroyed my rat colony - alligator jawed or similar. They break necks instantly, and are tailored to bigger vermin ie rats, stoats.

I'll try to find link for you, they are effective and humane.

Hope you don't lose any more hens to these pests in the meantime.
