I just had my (big) speckled sussex rooster and a full grown runner duck taken during the day yesterday. No prints or anything. I can see several areas with feathers where it looks like the rooster got loose and was caught again. Whatever it was went back into the woods to eat. And ideas what it could have been? I've seen a fox down the road. I know there has to be coyotes around as well. Some people are saying a raccoon but the rooster was very tall/big and the way the feathers are scattered in spots it doesn't look like it was dragged on the ground. I bought some leg traps and fox lure and DH is going to put up the game cam tonight. Building a run is not an option - they have acres to roam. I just want to catch whatever's getting them.
