Hello All!
I'm new to the group and I was hoping someone could help me. Something ate the heads off two of my silkies during the night. Now I keep them locked up unless I'm home. I don't even let them out in their fenced yard (that's where I found them). Does any one know how to catch a weasel?
Thanks,
Leda

! Great to have you in our community! Sorry to hear about your two lost birds. Might not be a weasel - could be an owl or maybe a raccoon. You might post in the link below for more precise advice. Best wishes!

I agree with Redsoxs I think weasels go more to blood sucking - did you notice any puncture marks on dead chickens? Please pay a visit to the predators thread for info on what type predator it may have been and how best to eliminate them.
