I have been trying to figure out which predator has killed 2 of my birds, I live in BC on Vancouver Island, my birds have been free ranging for 4 years, they have lots of cover and since I put up the electric fence the mink and coons have not been in. My rooster John Wayne didn;t come into the coop last night and I found a small (handful) of feathers at the bottom of the yard. No trail or sign of a fight or struggle, he was not a big rooster or a banty. So today when I drove up just at dusk I see a body in my yard and one of my light brahma hens is dead and has a bit of meat missing around her wing/chest area. In the past I have seen the Ravens come down and rip apart one of my hens but she had died of a sudden heart attack, they didnt kill her. Does this sound like a hawk, I am just wondering if a hawk could have flown away with the rooster, and obviously the hen was too heavy. So now everyone will have to be on lockdown until I can figure out how to make them safe. I do have owl here but they are being killed in the daylight as much as I can tell or just before sunset.
