    Hi all,

    Over the past few months i have had several chickens gone missing and some killed in the coop. Most of the chickens that have either been killed or missing were pekin bantams. I have lost two when i have let them out on an afternoon and several missing and killed in the coop during the night. I have mostly secure fences and have netting over the top (mostly because of the hawk problem.) i shut the coop door always at night and always count before i go to bed. I live in Australia so dont know what predators can cause this. I have lost all my expensive and favorite chickens because of something and it is getting very annoying!!! Any ideas would be helpful cheers.
