    I'm posting to let you know that yes, the picture showed up for me, I'm sorry for your loss, I don't have an educated guess on what really happened.

    I am just GUESSING....I don't see any real injuries, just some feathers missing...HMMM, do you have stray dogs. Dogs will chase things that run and then loose interest once they are dead. Just a guess. Need to know more of your set up....i.e. Coop kill, run kill, is your coop a "Fort Knox" or free ranging. Can't say much without more info.

    that looks like mine after the neighbor's dog killed a couple of my hens the dog just basically chewed them then left, what ever did it they will be back,if ya don't want to kill it get a paintball gun works great, it hurts but not fatally leave a mark too so who evers dog that is when they get home they will know he was somewhere he wasn't suppose to be..
