Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

If it happened at night ... Chickens can't see well in the dark, so they didn't run off, but were carried away ... If it happened in the daylight, then possible some ran off, but three month old chickens aren't too smart ... More than likely the fox got them.

When we had fox issues, she only took one at a time, night after night. There was minimal feathers, etc left at the scene. I don't think those littles ran off either, not in the dark. I think maybe you had a family of raccoons or something similar carry them off.

 

No matter what it was, if something the size of a fox or coon can get in your coop, you have some re-inforcing to do. Whatever it was will be back, at this point you're simply offering an all-you-can-eat buffet of fresh chicken.
