Can anyone help? This morning we discovered all of our chickens killed in the coop. Out of the 13 we had in there only two were left alive and these were 8 week old chickens so pretty large and flighty. We can't find any obvious break-in points at all! About 4-5 days ago something broke into the brooder and killed 10 chicks we had in there. All the chick bodies were gone, just some feathers were left. About 6 weeks ago we had something else demolish our first batch of chicks the same way, gone without a trace.

The brooder is very secure (so we thought), no holes and the top is wire and was weighted. Somehow it got into the top twice! Our coop is also very secure (again, so we thought) and we do not see any obvious signs of breaking in!!! Just $100s of dead chicks and chickens. I am so upset right now and just feel like giving up all together on trying to keep chickens. No matter what we have done this thing keeps killing everything!!

Don't give up, there is a solution for everything! Don't let a predator do that!
