I have a couple of questions for those with experience. Can one fox have made off with all of them? I counted 5 distinct sets of feathers, so am assuming some girls too stunned to come back to coop, so loss may be less than I think right now. I have no bodies, so I don't think dogs. Do coyotes take bodies with them in broad daylight? Do foxes hunt in multiples? Sounds like lots of piles of feathers in every direction for one lowly fox, but anyone with experience have insight on what I am facing?
We have large protected run which will be used til we sort this out. I will cull the downed birds if necessary but at least one of them is eating and drinking, so will wait it out, has been less than 6 hours since attack. Our coop is new and is tight, so at least we are good now. Any insight would be great, thanks in advance.
