Chicks are 11 weeks old and this was the 3rd day I'd let them out all day. Went to check on them mid-afternoon and noticed they were all huddled near the tiny coop in their yard, but one was missing. Took me a while to find what was left of her. Piles of feathers in a couple spots and then a lot of feathers and her feet. So sad. I've read the pinned article on this and it seems like the culrpit would be a cat, but then a search of the forum makes it seem like cat attacks are pretty rare. I know we have fox, possibly coyote and fisher cat in the area as well. Ideas? I haven't let the girls outside since because I need to figure out what the predator was and ensure their enclosure is safer. They were in a 3' tall temp run that is covered on all sides and top with chicken wire. I noticed one gap between sections of fencing on the top where a small animal could get in and that seems most likely given the state of the rest of the run. I'd only made the temp run because I am still trying to come up with a tractor so I can rotate them through the yard. Now I'm thinking maybe I need to invest in electronet? Ideally I want to be free ranging them so thinking solar powered electronet on a pvc frame might enable that.
