A little background before the story, I am a first time chicken mom and major animal lover! My flock was 13 6 week old BSL. About 4 days ago we had a day trip and didn't get home until much later than we had anticipated. When I went to the coop the first thing I saw was a dead 6 week old chick with its head a foot away from it!! I spot another body laying in the run and can't hear any noise coming from the coop, then my spotlight dies. In a panic/freak out I start back to the house when I hear my husband call my name and all I can say is "they're all dead" so to the rescue he comes, he's awesome like that. We get more flashlights, that work, and head out to investigate. My husband makes me stay out of the coop in case predator is still there. As he goes through the door I hear a chick and announce "I hear one alive, I've got to get it!" And as I'm rushing the door my husband says "wait it's above the door" so I stop, jump back and say "the chicken or the monster?" lol. Well it was one of 3 chicks that survived the attack. I took all 3 in my arms against my chest and walked around holding them as we assessed the situation and I decided what to do with them. The coop was a bloody mess and obviously not secure so I put my 3 survivors in a kennel in my sunroom, where they were before. We cleaned the coop and added security but the chickens stay in the coop all day and as it starts getting dark they go to the door and chirp vet loudly until I get them and bring them back inside for the night. They haven't spent another night in the coop but I know the time is coming that they will have to because I bought 6 more chicks that will soon need the kennel the survivors are in at night. Not sure how to make them more comfortable out there now.
