    How were the birds found, destruction wise? Or were they all taken away? Was this during the day or at night? Any feathers or body parts left behind? Can you tell us more about your coop and run as far as security?

    The track is hard to tell what it is without a size reference. The scat looks like bear scat.

    Hard to tell what track that is. It would help to know where you're located as that might indicate the kinds of common predators you'd have around. The scat looks like bear, but it's also hard to tell without some size reference.

    There were no birds left behind just feathers it was at night and they were in a coop that had a door with cinder blocks in front of it the blocks were moved and door was partially down. They never touched the eggs and they tools the chickens in the woods and ate them.

    I don’t think bear because it can’t fit inside the pen I have for them
