    And there was definitely something wrong with him, he stumbled and just looked ill overall.

    How long was he coming and eating chicken feed? Some raccoons can survive distemper but end up screwy in the head. Rabies usually kills them in about a week and a half. Either way it’s best to put down a raccoon coming close to your chickens for any reason.

    Looks like a coon print to me. Put up a game camera. It will probably be back. I have noticed on my cameras that many predators have routines and come by to check out things quite regularly. This was a rainy night. A coon. IMAG0002722 01.jpg

    Did they try to get in the coop or eat their food?

    That sounds like rabies be careful. Coons will stumble and appear almost drunk
