Who crawled into the hen house, took a hen and left the wings behind? I have had my four hens for seven years now without any predator attacks. I live in town, in a subdivision with an undeveloped wooded 5 acre lot behind my fence. I have never seen any animal in my yard other than a squirrel. A racoon could fit through the hen house door but not anything larger. Yesterday morning I found one of my hens floating in the koi pond like a duck. She was dead but did not appear injured. No birds has ever been in the pond. Inside the hen house I found the wings of another hen. My last two girls were in the yard. They know what happened but aren't sharing. Something must of moved into the neighborhood. What could fit through the door, come at night and take all of a chicken except the wings? Racoon, possum, ferret, mink? What critter doesn't know that chicken wings are all the rage? I'm guessing the the bird in the pond was running for her life and got stuck in the pond. Now my poor girls are confined to the run for their own safety. Of course the two best hens are the ones who died.
