    the only tracks we found were old...bc it was imprinted in "mud" and there hasnt been any in a while.....and it looked like a bird...but bigger than a chicken....and there were others that i couldnt tell you what it was....looked like a deer with a third toe in the back? i dont know...

    eta: no left overs....just feathers this last time

    Ok...I don't live that far away. Have shotgun in one hand and shovel in the other. Just in case it is someone else's pet.

    Seriously...Is this happening at night or in the daytime.

    If I didn't have such a good dominant roo, the rest of my flock would be taken out by hawks.
