Oh gosh that's awful!
No evidence is something big enough to carry the whole thing away. Coyotes, foxes, etc. Usually I think racoons are bad about killing and just eating the crop out of the bird, and leaving the carcass. Hawks can also fly away with smaller chicks. Dogs will take them away too. I had one golden comet disappear, we think a hawk got it.
Swedish ducks, golden comets and a light brahma roo, large fowl lavender orpingtons, bantam chocolate orpingtons, bantam cochins, silver duckwing OEGBs and Seramas!

I might have to take you up on that! I'm not that far, depending where in Charleston. I'm about 20 minutes from the airport there.

You sound educated in this chicken stuff. Its good to know you. Grin. I'm fairly green concerning fowl.
Armand is outside? Yikes! Lol. With all those feathers, he will be fine. His children would probably be perched on my shoulder right now. Lol. My BCMs are at my feet again. Way too young to be outside.
I'd like my blue eggers to be americaunas, cause that's what I paid for, but its OK if they are mutts. I bought my BCMs from my pet chicken in November. They look good to me...but I'm new. I'm hoping for eggs in late spring if you decide you'd like some.

I would love to buy some hatching eggs from the bcm from you! I'm looking to buy some fun rare breeds. Most people here don't want to buy them here but if I can get npip certified I can ship them

I'm glad too! It's been hard being here, so far from family! I've owned chickens for about 5/6 years now. I'm beyond chicken obsessed. Hubby is starting to get on board wink.png

We have coyote and fox in numbers way too high for being in the city. It is scary.

Well you're very welcome to them. I'm just a few minutes away from Women's and Children's Hospital. Not far away at all. Grin.

Thanks! I keep trying to get them to lay... They get light and scratch and food and table scraps. They just don't love me!

Oh lordy...I'm happy to just give you some of their eggs to hatch. Would make me feel good knowing my grandchicks are making someone happy. They were hatched the last of November, so won't be too much longer. OK...will be a few months but hey, I get anxious! Lol

Ah goodness...I bet it is hard being so far from family. My family lives in WV and Kansas City, but its been years since I've seen any of them. I'm glad your guy is getting into the chickens too. I have no one interested in them. They think I'm nuts for wanting them with eggs so cheap. I totally enjoy my chicks!
