Its took me a while to work out what has been taking my bantam pullets. One every few days vanished. it always happened at night when the house lights are out.. or when we are out in the daytime. Tonight I turned off all the house lights and waited. After a short while I heard a pullet cheeping and I went outside very quietly and then shone a torch on the coop. There was a huge domestic cat with its front legs through the wire pulling through a pullet. It ran off as soon as I turned on the torch. I don't know how to stop this cat. My bird fee range in the daytime.. and I have lost 6 birds now. I was thinking about making a run.. but, as I saw tonight, the cat can get them through the wire too.
