We went out of town for a week, and I forgot to tell the person that was coming to look after our chickens to close one of the chicken coop doors. Only two chickens roosted in there. We got home and one hen was hurt very badly at the top of her leg. The other was left as just a skelaton. (sp?) Whatever it was, it could have kept coming back because we were gone for a whole week. All of the parts of the body were connected. The head wasn't ripped off or anything. We set the trap when we got home, and caught a raccoon, so could that have been it?
