I had 3 barred rocks, a roo and 2 hens, my wife went in after work to let them out to range and check the food and water, she found the roo and larger hen dead. I went to get a closer look and clean up the birds and found the roo missing his hackel feathers and a at the base if the skull and the hen missing her head(found it later between the outside barn boards and the inside plywood, the biggest hole is between an inch and an inch and a half, not sure what would do this, they were 6 months old, though hadn't found any eggs yet. No skunky or musty smell, down to one hen now. Any ideas as to what might have done that?
