Yesterday me and the wife went to get eggs from the coop and decided to check the backyard fence as we let the chickens out in the backyard to free range during the day and have had chickens taken before and to our dismay there were white feathers every where something had taken our last light brahma pullet. we tracked it into the woods and found where it appears she was eaten as all we found was feathers and the gizzard. so we began trying to find a den or something to tell us what we are dealing with that's when we found other kill sites from other chickens that went missing. so it appears to be picking our chickens off and taking them back to generally the same place and eating them. we believe its either a coyote, fox or a bobcat. does anyone know if this sounds right? im about to start hunting backyard fence from my tree stand, i cant stand loosing chickens. also i heard if you put an electric fence ground level that predators wont get near it as they sense it or something. any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated.
