    Rats??

    Could be a possum.

    Coyotes :(

    No on the turkeys. Coyotes, and in my unlucky experience, bobcats, will both kill turkeys. I had a bobcat kill my full grown tom turkey. The only way I knew is because I had it on video (of the bobcat coming back to retrieve the turkey).

    Where'd you get the parents from? The wattles on the male are huge...should be pet quality only.

    CDs and hawks

    I second that. CD's do not work. I had the exact thing happen, hawk took a chick right from where I had all the CD's hanging. Don't waste your time.

    Should I use DIATOMACEOUS EARTH ???

    I did not have any luck with the DE. I went so far as to taking DE internally for a while, but I did not see a change. I agree that my birds REALLY like to dust in the ash left over from bonfires. There must be something in there that smothers the mites and parasites. Personally, I would not...

    Full grown pekin drake taken at night

    Bobcat is my guess. I had a terrible issue with one last year. Killed my adult tom turkey and hand-raised peahen that I had for years. Got him on video.

    Bobcat!

    You know I never did get the bobcat. It either moved on or someone else got it, as I know it was attacking at least one other person's livestock. Definitely not normal behavior for a bobcat. At any rate, all birds are locked up now at night and when I'm not home.

    Bobcat!

    Wow! What is it with the bobcats here in SW Florida??? The bobcat is definitely in the area. I set the turkey decoy up Thursday night on top of the 6 ft. privacy fence that borders the woods. At about 2 a.m., my peacocks woke me up with their honking, so I ran out there with the flashlight...

    Bobcat!

    Yes it has, in fact it was back yesterday, this time during the DAY! I heard a huge commotion and by the time I got out there all I found was an injured peahen, and it was out of sight. So for now on, my birds will stay locked up permanently until I can get rid of this problem animal. Injured...

    Bobcat!

    Agreed. It's not a matter of if, but when, he'll come back to this part of his territory. I have my backyard under surveillance. It left hungry last time, so maybe that's a good thing. I might never have the chance to shoot it.
