I'm becoming more and more convinced that's what happened here. There's nothing on the trail cam this morning except me setting it up last night and the chickens getting up this morning.
I had intermittent problems with my fence for a while. It wasn't working or was very weak, and I wasn't aware of it. Something came in during those times and killed birds. When the fence is working, it doesn't come in. I just need to test the fence more frequently.
The traps I have aren't working. I'm going to try the 55 gallon barrel idea and see if that gets them. I'll have to get them all at one go, because I do think they saw their companion get caught early on and learned to avoid the traps.
