Went out this morning to find our entire flock of GLW (except one that could flew pretty good) gone!

The flock was accidentally left unguarded

last night. There are only a couple small piles of feathers around! Other than that it's as if they were never there!

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what may have done this based on the evidence?

- 25 bird GONE!
- 2 little clumps of feathers
- a hole about 12 inches tall in the fence on the far side of the run (but it doesn't look like it had been gone through)
- no obvious signs of struggle
- no footprints that I could find

Known predators in the area:
- Foxes
- Hawks
- Skunks
- Fisher Cats
- Bobcats
- Raccoons

Any help would be appreciated!

I am so sorry for you. I lost all my chicks from this years hatchings, but over the course of two days had 7 show back up. I have no idea where they were but was glad to have them. I know how it feels I lost probably 50 or so chicks and don't know what got them but I had bodies so there is hope!
