    Something happened to my dads rooster and he can't figure out what happened. He went out and found his rooster gone. Obviously something got him but what's strange is there is nothing other than a bunch of feathers. There's no blood, no bones, just feathers. And this was a very large rooster as well (and a really mean one). He had it in its own fence and he said it was really secure and he doesn't know what could have gotten in and the rooster was way to big for whatever attacked him to get it out. It's a big mystery.

    Where are you located? And how tall is the fence? Generally coyote, Fox and bobcat can carry off a full grown chicken with only feathers left behind.
