I woke up at 4 am to the sound of panicked chickens. By the time I got outside, there were 2 dead - but the rest (13) were okay. I assumed it was a raccoon. We have a light fence around the garden area and the chickens themselves are in moveable A frame coops. I know what happened with the coops, but here's my question: After I put the 13 safely into our barn (a new coop that is almost finished), I left the bodies of the two dead ones in the garden thinking I would clean them up this morning. Neither one of them were missing any parts, but looked as if they had been bitten on the neck. This morning when I went out, they had disappeared. Everything I've read here points to racoons eating the crops or a head or leg. Would a raccoon have come back and eaten the whole things? Or should I suspect something else?
