I was out of town for a few days when my husband dropped me a note to let me know that 6 of our hens were killed in one evening. We have no idea what got them, so I was hoping for some ideas from you folks. He realized they were gone when he went out to lock them up a little late - after dark had fallen already. The only evidence was patches of feathers EVERYWHERE in the road (600 feet downhill from our house), in the run, in the woods, in our neighbors yard... And we also found one foot. The rest of the chickens just disappeared. We are in the woods of PA, so we have tons or predators - foxes, racoons, owls, hawks - but I can't imagine what would take 6 hens in one shot! He says he was gone for 2 hours in the afternoon and then he was in the house in the evening helping the kids with homework and dinner. The rest of the day he was out in the yard. So it either happened mid-day when he was out or just after dark. Any idea what would take out that many birds in one shot and not leave any remains?
