Well went out this morning to let them out and my little partidge chochin hen who I just named yesterday was dead her head was pulled off. In the last week I had noticed that it looked like something had dug in the corner I replaced dirt and set a cinder block over it. Honestly didn't think it was a threat thought it was a mole or vole or something because the dirt in that room was spongy (you would sink a bit in it) Yesterday I walke around the entire building to see how whatever was getting in and can find no entrance from the outside. I have 3-4 cochins that won't roost and 2 white laced red cornish. Of course they are all roos except the one that got got. There is a door between the screen room and the coop but has a hole in it and does not have a latch. That was being fixed today guess to late. I talked with my neighbor and had no idea that we had weasels or minks around here never heard anyone say anything about them my entire life around here but I am guessing that is what it is. door with hole and they would pile up in the corner by the nest box behind where the andalusian hen is Well it is to late for her but the new door is up now. The guy that did the door looked at the dirt and you can't really see a hole just a pile of dirt we put the dirt back and the cinerblock on top again but the door will be latched every night now. but if whatever it is can get in that room hope that they won't get in the main coop. I kept thinking coons would pull off the old screen on the south that will be getting repaired soon hadn't expected something like this to come in under. I wonder if I need to take all the dirt out and then put down hardware cloth and dirt over top. Still cna't find out where it coming from on the outside. -------------------------------------------- Well whatever it is didn't come back through the previous place it came in a new one under the old feeder attached to the wall. At least new door was in place no one got got last night.
