Something is eating my baby chicks that my moma hen hatched. one to two aday. It is completely enclosed with wire in the bottom sides. I did find one hole under wire and can't find the end. about a silver dollar size. I'm thinking snake. But my husband says it wouldn't take one every day or two a day. Happens mid day, Can a snake do this, why ain't the other three adults killing it, and what to do about it? I did find one tore off wing yesterday. and feathers in a laying box one day.
At first I thought that the cat was getting them because the babies kept breaking out and fixed where the door had a crack and whatever it is in getting them inside the closed pen.
