    I had two almost 4 month old ducks to disappear today. I have no clue what happened. They was here this morning at 6am but when I got back home at 9am they was no where to be seen. The 2 that are missing are always with the older ducks I have, the older ducks are here and safe. I have looked everywhere I would think they would go and nothing, no ducks no feathers. The older ducks have been acting funny all day being very noisy and loud like they are calling for them. What could have happen to them? The 2 that are missing was raised together and never leave each other. My heart was broken tonight when I went to lock the coop and they wasn't in there.

    Red Tail Hawks? Coyotes, Foxes?

    Very sorry for your losses. I do believe I'd keep the others locked up because what ever it was will be back they took the smallest first which was probably the easiest.

    Sorry, I also lost one of my Ducks to something, I believe it was a coyote but no sign of feathers etc. I let the ducks out too early in the morning I think. Now I wait until full daylight.
