Help-chicken predator advice please!! We lost 10 of our 12 member flock this past week or two. 3 caught out or caught through a crack we have since fixed, all with head's and neck missing, rest intact. Then 7 all at once in their coop last night!! Not the same MO for all of them, but I am thinking whatever it was before got mad and finally got in and went crazy. I was thinking raccoon, but now maybe a fisher cat since it obviously squeezed through some small hole or dug/chewed one to get in there last night. Any suggestions to protect our two survivors?? The last two are currently being cared for in my make shift chicken hospital in the basement and may or may not make it. Up until now our home built coop has protected chickens in it from predators (for 5 years!) but I am wonderig how this one got in-do we have to rebuild?? We haven't dealt with the aftermath yet. Oh-and for what it's worth we are in the rural Northeast. Any way to get a predator like that to move on? (Though obviously not onto someone else's flock, I hope!) I have really appreciated all the info on this site and have read through some of the other predator posts... I now need to know how to get this fisher or whatever it is to move on!! Thank you in advance!!
