I remember seeing her the smorning and telling her i would see her when i got home then i found her and there was a little whole in the run right next to her... is its a weasle the whole wasnt very big. I live in central Pennsilvania and there run is right beside a stream. Any help would be appreciated i would like to protect my fourteen remaining hens!

    So sorry for your loss [​IMG]. I wish I could be more help on which predator it was. Hopefully someone with more experience will chime in.
