I live in Virginia and today has been a wintery mix. My chickens/guineas free-range during the day and are in a coop at night. I went out around 1:30pm today to put my horses in the barn and the guineas were screaming like crazy. I walked behind the barn and a hawk flew away with nothing in it's mouth. My daughter and I started gathering up the the guineas and chickens to put them in their coops. Well, we now have an Americauna Rooster, a barred rock hen and a buff orpington hen gone. We did find a few feathers from the buff but nothing from the rooster or barred rock. Is it possible that a hawk would take a hen somewhere and come back and get more the same day? We also found a pile of guinea feathers, but fortunately they are all accounted for. This occurred between 10am-1:30pm today. My barn is a good distance from the house so I never heard the commotion until I went outside to get my horses out of the weather. Anybody else had this happen? I can't believe a hawk would snatch up my rooster-he's pretty big!
