Today at 1pm I heard my chickens panick, so I ran outside and found that 1 chicken was bleeding (it's leg) and 1 chicken was missing (there were lots of feathers on the ground). I followed the 'feathertrail', and eventually found my chicken dead in my neighbours ditch. Her head was detached (still there), and I saw some marks on her breast. But I think nothing was really eaten. Half an hour later a friend stopped by and told me that she saw a coyote in our driveway. AND our cat has been missing since a few days as well... . AND a few months ago there was a raccoon in our garage. We have chickens for over 4 years already, and nothing ever happened before... The preditor must have jumped/climbed the 4ft fence (with my fattest chicken in it's mouth). I really want to secure my chicken area, but I think I first must know what preditor took my chicken. Could someone help me??? Thanks a lot.
