    A little more info may be helpful for people, did this happen in the night or during the day?

    Sounds like you have a raccoon visiting or a mink. Daylight? Dusk? What time of day? Were the confined? more info please

    literally about 2 hours ago during day light. i ran to the store to get a garden hoe and came back to a masacre. i let the chickens out to free range and this has never happened before.

    Raccoons can reach their nasty little hands through chicken wire and grab heads to chew them off, so I'm guessing a coon. And they come back after they have successfully killed a bird.
