Yeah, all the birds were dead and only a mink sitting on the roost.
It was pitch dark out and all I had was a flashlight and a .22 revolver. It is a 3 unit building and each time I went to one window, he'd slip through to the other side. It took about 8 shots before I finally got him.
As for the sound, no chicken noises at all. Just banging as the mink bit each one on the neck. I lost 6 flocks of chickens in 6 nights. It/they didn't eat a bite of meat.
Because of the baby monitor I was able to save about 20 birds that night.
I know there are still some around here but I've closed off every opening over 1/2"
If it were light the chickens would have made all kinds of noise but they couldn't see what was coming.
