Last night i forgot to close up the coop. (actually one person thought the other closed the coop and vice versa.) I had about 20 chickens yesterday and now i have three. I am really sad. I want to protect my remaining three hens. The only trace of most of my chickens is simply a line of feathers that stops suddenly though there is little sign of something eating it. One chicken was a little far away from the coop lying on his back with his head cut off. When we flipped him over, his whole backside had been chewed up. I am wondering if it is a possiblity that some chickens got away or if it is most likey they were all eaten. It seems as if the one with his head off points to raccoon but the missing ones point to fox. (we have a lot of foxes in the area) Earlier in the month a similiar attack happened but there was only one dead and like the chicken that tried to get away, only his head was eaten. Does anyone know what it was?
