Today, in the middle of the day, and in just a matter of an hour or 2, 10 of my chicks were killed (7 week old and 3 three weeks old), two disappeared (the larger 3-4 week ones), and two babies wounded.
They were in the garage, homed in cardboard boxes, with the older ones flying/walking freely. I opened the door temporarily to let some fresh air in, then closed the door and went to pick the kids.
I don't remember to have seen anything wrong when I left tho I checked as I closed the door. After we arrived and the kids were fed I went again to check the chicks and found half of one box literally flattened at the bottom.
I am totally devastated.
What on earth happened?
Was it a weasel, or a rat?
I moved them into my pantry where they should be safe, but would like to know what it was..
