I have lost several chickens. One a night. No signs of anything, just gone. Except the last two. There were feathers everywhere. Big pile in the run, big pile on other side of fence (5 foot high) and a trail of feathers through the yard across the street and into the thicket. Never been able to find a carcass. They always disappear at dusk so I was putting them up earlier and earlier but they kept disappearing earlier and earlier. I was thinking an owl until I saw the trail of feathers along the ground. (Those last two were also my biggest two, including my rooster, Buff Orphingtons). I always thought an owl would land on them, kill them, and then fly off with them. Any ideas at what this could be? I live in northeastern Tennessee. My remaining chickens are being kept completely locked up and have remained fine. I need to identify this predator so I can catch and kill OR relocate depending on what it is. Coyote, bobcat, owl, or fox are my guesses so far. Was really leaning towards owl because of the time of day they are being taken. Dusk ONLY. I don't hear any hooting at night, no crying like coyotes do. Any help would be great. Any comments that are not helpful.....Please don't.
