Hi. I could probably find an answer to this if I looked around, but I am in a hurry. We have a flock born at the end of Feb. that look pretty darn big to me, but we have lost 5 chickens with no trace. No feathers, no wandering off- we have searched. There are no tracks, no noise, and no sign the chickens were attacked at all. we can't figure it out. The first disappeared about 2 weeks ago. The others were all lost in the last 3 days. We only had 21, so we need to find out what it happening right away. They are let out anywhere from 10am to 2pm and stay until late afternoon. I go round them up and put them up just a bit earlier than they would like to go. Thanks in advance. BTW, we live in West TN and have hawks, coyotes, RARE bobcats, raccoons, oppossums, snakes, etc. I have never see a lynx in 7 yrs but people say they are around here. The coop is secure, so we know it's not during the night. Thanks again.
