    If animals are dispearing....no sign, no trace?

    Could be one of three things:

    1. Nice big chicken hawk is nabbing off your flock.

    2. You've got a canine predator...fox most likely, but it could be a coyote as well. But most likely a fox.

    3. You've got a couple of thieves out to rob you blind.


    Those are my best guesses.
