It's a hawk. I heard them going nuts and ran to see what it was and saw the hawk flying from the run. At least I know what I'm dealing with. Now to figure out the best top.

You said earlier:  "On both occasions of losses the birds are missing with no blood just feather evidence everywhere near the door of my coop."  So I'm wondering if you don't have two different predators.  Because I didn't think a hawk would carry off birds..I could be wrong but I thought they killed on the spot and you would find the remains.

Just because you caught it in a trap, doesn't make it the killer of your chickens.

It's a definite possibility! The wingspan of this hawk today was huge. He flew off when I went to investigate but I have two more chickens missing from the closed run. They're coop bound for the time being. I'm stringing twine tonight until we can get a roof put on. Thanks for the help everyone!
