...and killed three of our chickens. A couple got away unscathed. One was bitten on the rump but seems alright, I haven't inspected her yet. The rooster has a big bite--several teeth marks--along his rump and the feathers are missing. One dead hen looks entirely unharmed, maybe she got trampled or died from the stress. Broken neck maybe? Couldn't find any bite marks. One of them had her belly eaten out, which made me think skunk or racoon. One of them was eaten completely, with just her head and the tip of one wing left. The rooster's injuries are what threw me. It looks like a row of large teeth, I'm thinking canine. We aren't sure if he's going to make it and might put him down. I've taken pictures and circled the punctures as they're a bit difficult to see in the pictures and because I applied non pain relief neosporin. The punctures are at least the circumference of a pen or pencil and appear to be patterned like canine teeth. They seem too big to be a raccoon, we don't have possums where I live and I've only seen one fox in my entire life. We had a mountain lion problem last year, but it carried them away in the night and left nothing but a pile of feathers. I'm thinking coyote. What do you guys think?
