Hi all! A few nights ago, we lost a chicken to a raccoon Our fault, as we didn't get home at a reasonable hour and forgot to close them in ... well since then, I've been very paranoid about our ladies. Last night I woke up and heard strange noises. In my dream-state, it sounded like babies crying. When I woke up it sounded closer to a peacock call, except started higher then went lower. We ran outside and made loud noises to get anything that was harassing our birds to leave! I didn't see anything run out, but it was dark. The chickens were closed in their pen, my only thought is that it could have been a small opossum or rat trying to get eggs? Has anyone heard this kind of call before? Thx!
