I had 12 turkey poults in a chain link dog kennel with a wooden floor and a metal roof. They have perches to go on, and they have a wooden dog house to go in. I just moved them outside this weekend. When I went out this morning, there was a blood bath in the kennel. 3 dead turkey poults were in the kennel with just their heads missing and blood splattered everywhere. 2 were near the edge of the kennel, so I'm not sure if something pulled their heads through? One was in the center, so I'm not sure if maybe a weasel or mink went in the cage or if a raccoon got to them? Now I'm wondering what I can do to prevent more loss tonight. Will wrapping poultry wire around the kennel help? I have a "have a heart" trap that I can put near the kennel as well, but I'm not sure what to bait it with. I don't want to capture one of my cats. (And I know my cats didn't kill the poults - they are scared of them, lol.) Any advice would be appreciated, I don't want to lose any more poults. I did also lose 3 full grown guinea hens about 2 weeks ago - but they were just missing in the morning, no sign of any struggle. I hate predators!
