    My neighbor came home to his littles all dead. This coop had a tarp staked on all four sides, three were still staked into the ground but the coop was uncovered. The feeder was in two pieces, one piece outside of the coop with food still in it. One chicken was outside of the coop. Hate to think of humans doing this, but we think if it was an animal there would be blood or damage to the bodies. :([​IMG]

    Are there any signs of how the predator got in (holes in the mesh, dug in, ect)?

    No signs of anything. Coop is secure, nothing dug up or moved, everything is completely as it was, except they are all dead. We had a little rain here in there, thought maybe something blew threw weather wise, but doesn't explain the one bird and feeder part outside of the coop. The birds are all intact, no damage to the bodies at all. Just crazy.
