That's awful. So sorry. I know how you feel. A predator, I think a fisher got 5 of my ducks last wednesday. It's devastating. Any idea what kind of predator?

Thank you!!! yes very devestating, especially having to put the other 2 down and seeing them all mangled, Im sorry also!! I THINK it was a racoon, or a fisher? cat! ugh i had to dig a grave and bury them deep,been at it all day!!what a mess!! meat and feathers all over... ON the bright side (things must of been meant to be) I glanced at CL and A farm was downsizing and getting rid of 1 yr old layer hens 5$ each, the guy had atleast 300 ,.... I went right into the nest house and grabbed em off the nest boxes SO I KNEW FOR SURE they were still laying lol... UGH im so TIRED

When one door closes another opens. I'm glad you got replacements. This saved you lots of time and money. Now you have to predator proof the cop and pen. Secure gate latches make a big difference.

I'm sorry for your loss. I know it's hard. Been there, done that.  :cd

This was actually, my fault, I remember rushing off last minute and I went down there I could of sworn I secured the coop, But I must have left the back door unlocked, as I do when I'm filling up their water and come right back, I had a few gotten 5 years back, and I rigged it up like Fort Knocks, so I blame myself, jeez....... One slip up I'm still in disbelief......But I can't believe I got such a good deal.....
