My family and I left the house for a few hours in the early afternoon last week. Upon our return I noticed only 3 hens left. The other 6(including 1 large rooster) had vanished without a trace. I live on 3 acres surrounded by cane fields. It may be noteworthy that the weather was really bad that day and the chickens tend to congregate under our carport when that happens. Does anyone have any idea of a predator that would have been able and willing to take 5 hens and one large rooster without a trace in the middle of the day? I don't want to sway anyone but I'm thinking people. Your thoughts would greatly appreciated. I live in south Louisiana by the way.
