    critters Chillin' With My Peeps

    My son and his family lost 4 hens within an hour of each other and scattered
    at different areas out side the house....
    head pulled off and left 10 feet from body..
    2 attacked from their rear side (vaginal ? area?)
    1 several bites and all left dead...except the rooster who flew into a tree...

    I'm guessing a weasel or member of his family or maybe a possom???
    but what or who would of killed all 4 within under an hour??

    this happened shortly after them getting out of thier coop...
    and in the soutern Virginia mountains area.

    That sucks! I think you are on the right track with the weasel/family. [​IMG]
