    Ok Some time in the middle of the night something got attacked ! I counted and checked all my chickens, turkeys and ducks, I then checked my old ugly cat,, no blood !
    Now you might say that something attacked something outside ( lots and lots of blood, and some chunky stuff too )
    I wonder if I have that special breed of attack Chickens or Turkeys? no, I would not assume it was the ducks ( limpy, gimpy and bob ) way too mild mannered and handicapped .
    Has anyone ever encountered this special breed of attack chickens?? Should I worry about an uprising and wear some special kevlar pants when I go back in there to clean??

    It might be a rat. You may think, "A rat? That can't do much harm!" But they can. Rats are vicious. And if the poultry was raised together, they probably wont attack each other.

    I hope this helps.

    Check out the feather or fur, what is it? Does it match your birds? Did a raptor fly into your fencing? Count yourself lucky and check your set up for possible entry points and treat the girls right, maybe you do have a .... NINJA TURKEY! [​IMG]
