I've had 10 chickens during the passed 2 years and now I' own 4. Many predetors I have identified until this one. I've always had my chickens free range and never had a problem until it got dark and the coop wasn't closed yet but this time, I have a daytime predator and I don't know what it is. Both killings had carcasses left with barely and meat taken off. They were in two different areas of my yard. One at the woodsy brook and another near the fencing of the front yard. My other chickens seem petrified. Hiding under anything possible. I'm keeping them inside the coop for now on but I need to know whose killing my girls!
